[SLE] Adobe Update for 10.0 disables PDF

I'm having problems with the Acrobat Reader update that is in YaST at the
moment. I installed the 7.0.8-1.1 that YaST recommended, but whenever I went
to a website that opened a PDF, Firefox, Opera and Konqy barfed at it - and
Konqueror is trying to open up kpdf.

Dropping back to 7.0.1-4 makes the links work again, including Konqueror
opening PDF's with kpdf.

It sounds like the acroread update is modifying a link somewhere which insn't
correct. Anyone any idea what it is doing?

I am running KDE 3.5.3, Firefox and Opera 9.
