so finally i had some time to repackage xpdf with GAR.
Updated version can be found in testing, included a fix for 0002724 
and and the latest security patches.

Talking about the bug:
I am definatly not an libXt expert, so i dont know if my fix is
appropriate. In xpdf/XPDFCore.cc the call to XtVaSetValues is
done with the wrong(?) widget and therefor fails to size the
window correctly. My diff therefor (and apparently the fix) is
kind of trivial.
-    XtVaSetValues(drawArea, XmNwidth, width, XmNheight, height, NULL);
+    XtVaSetValues(shell, XmNwidth, width, XmNheight, height, NULL);
But as mentioned above, i dont know if this is the right place to
fix this issue, nor why the unpatched code works fine on *BSD and
So if there is anyone familiar with libXt and/or stumbled upon
this or similar issue, i would be eager to know :-)
