Slash / causes display problem

I love the extension.

One thing i've noticed is that pdf documents with a slash / in the title causes the title not to display.

Can't reproduce, sample needed

I can't reproduce this bug on my side: all the PDF generators I have encode the Title property correctly to Hexadecomal or Octal (as required by PDF specs), so the "/" is not an issue.

This is how the title "Test/slash" is encoded in my test files (bold chars represent the / char) :

OpenOffice Writer (Hexadecimal Unicode):
/Title002F0073006C006100730068>

PDFCreator (Octal Unicode):
/Title(\376\377\000T\000e\000s\000t\000/\000s\000l\000a\000s\000h)

I suppose that the software used to generate your PDF has not encoded the Title (plain text) and PDFPropertyExtension has an issue on that.

If it doesn't contain any private info, could you please send me that PDF (or a link to it) through the contact form?
Otherwise, if you generated that file, could you please generate a sample one that shows the bug?
