It doesn't make sense for this to be a link if the file is there on
its own, but I tried copying a separate PDF manual into the same
directory as a PDF manual with a link to it, and clicking on the link
worked in that case: it loaded the other manual at the specified
section. I don't know how many people will use this feature. They
would have to have a directory full of PDF manuals. My feeling is
although it is a bit confusing, it should be kept because some people
may find it useful.
