as far as i know, this is only a problem with newer
versions (> 5.0 or so) of acroread. i suggest using evince,
kpdf, xpdf or ghostscript/gv. all of them should work fine.

i tried several ways to identify the origin of the problem
but could not find a simple workaround. i have been asking
before if there was somebody around willing to invest some
time in maintaining and updating those pages. i will gladly
assist in discussing issues and provide the original source
tree. it is an excellent project for somebody with an interest
in understanding the 'spirit' of VMD scripting and a hand
for web design. if more people are interested in contributing
and maintaining those pages, we could host and discuss them,
e.g., biocore.
