You are right, there has been an error, but it is sufficient to check if "filename" does not equal NULL. I've created an updated patch.

Hi,

I only looked at the patch (i.e. not at the full source), but shouldn't the free() be protected by the same if statement as the malloc()?

Hi,

the following was reported as Debian Bug #397118:

Subject: Bug #397118: gv can't open files whose name begins with "-"

Package: gv
Version: 1:3.6.2-1
Severity: normal

Create a postscript file called "-0.01.ps",
run gv, then use File->Open, and select -0.01.ps.
You'll get an error box saying "Unknown switch -0.01.ps - ignoring."

Clearly, someone forgot to quote the file name when handing it to
gs.
