highlighting (review tool) transpass columns in double column pdf's

Bug Description

Binary package hint: okular

when I try to highlight some text with more than one line in double column pdf files, the correspondent line in the previous column is also highlighted.

this make very difficult to review pdf's, because I have to highlight line by line, clicking in the highlight button every time I highlight a single line (this should be "fixed" too).

package version: 0.5.82-0ubuntu3
ubuntu release: 7.10

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. We are sorry that we do not always have the capacity to look at all reported bugs in a timely manner.
According to the upstream report, this issue should have been fixed since KDE 4.8, so Precise should include this fix as well.
It would help us a lot if you could test it on a currently supported Ubuntu version. When you test it and it is still an issue, kindly upload the updated logs by running apport-collect 199468 and any other logs that are relevant for this particular issue.
