Please disregard my earlier e-mail earlier this evening.

I found a solution for the display issue.

change the line in
/etc/mailcap that reads 'application/pdf; /usr/bin/xdg-open %s'
to read 'application/pdf; /usr/bin/evince %s'

Please post this thread in the event that it helps someone else.

Needless to say, I use GNU/Linux (Fedora 15)

Thanks so much for your help.

I cannot reproduce this with Org-mode version 7.7 (release_7.7.311.g0c099),
so I'd suspect your 6.33 (which is quite old, but unfortunately still ships
with older versions of emacs). If you are at all serious about using
org-mode, you probably need to install the 7.7 release (or if you are
willing to live on the edge, clone the git repository and enjoy all the
up-to-date features - and some breakages, but ime, breakages get fixed
