gv doesn't read resource files

Bug #117890 reported by marmux on 2007-05-31
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gv (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gv

the last version of gv (1:3.6.2-3ubuntu1) released with feisty doesn't seem to read resources from the configuration files like ~/.gv .
whenever an option (for example the print command) is modified via the menu State > Setup Options, this correctly saves the modified entry in the .gv file in the user's home. clicking on the "Apply" button saves the option for the current session of gv.
However, when gv is restarted the modified option is reset to the default value.
Starting gv with the explicit option "--ad=~/.gv" doesn't seem to have any effect.
On the other hand, downgrading to the previous version (1:3.6.1-13ubuntu0.2) gives the correct behavior.

This bug in version 3.6.2 is well known. It is fixed in gv 3.6.3 - please update.
