CONCLUSION: System is up-to-date!
found SLE-10-x86_64-SP2 + "online updates"

An old TID (2973618) talked about updated files to handle the PDF abend but that predates the versions installed here.

Sounds like a new version of something is needed here to handle this format/version of PDF, but not yet finding it out there.

Any help appreciated!
