This used to be a major problem. Some of the browsers just didn't work properly
particularly when network delays were also present.
Modern versions of acrobat reader together with the latest Gecko based/IE 6
browsers seem to have solved this mostly, but John occasionally sees it with his
Win2K IE6 AcrobatReader 5 (particularly with delays caused by him running on the
same machine as the server). What happens is that you click on the link and get
a white screen. Hitting refresh usually solves the problem. However, the only
guranteed way was for us to suggest the right click and save method.
