Yikes, it is possible.  You are correct, Sir!

Many thanks for your expert and perennial contributions to this list.

Is it possible that you are using the initial release of FM8.0?  The
initial FM8.0 release handled link information incorrectly (missing two
angle brackets in the definition of the link's action in the PS file).

Check whether you can update FM8 (applying available patches).

If not, as a workaround: turn Tagged PDF on (without selecting specific
tags) in FM's PDF Setup dialog box

[note: I don't generally recommend producing "Tagged PDFs" from FrameMaker]
