Yeah, the PDF toolchain is very fragile. Yet, I'm pretty sure I was able
to build PDF in the past without noticing the problems fixed by patches
1 and 2. Maybe the bugs has to do with some specific incompatibility with

What Sphinx version are you using?

It is too late now, but tomorrow I'll test with a few Spinx versions
and see if PDF builds equally well with them.

For the media and EDAC changes (patches 3 and 4), once I test it,
feel free to add my ack and send via your tree:

Actually, despite any "errors", usually it produces the PDF files.
I have a robot building just the media documentation, daily basis,

The robot is using Sphinx 1.4.8 version.
