I cannot reproduce it with

GNU Emacs 23.2.1 (i486-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.20.0) of 2010-12-11 on raven, modified by Debian

Org-mode version 6.33f (release_6.33f)

neither. The minimal Emacs initfile used:

| (add-to-list 'load-path "~/projects/org-mode/org-mode/lisp")
| (add-to-list 'load-path "~/projects/org-mode/org-mode/contrib/lisp")
| (add-to-list 'load-path "~/projects/org-mode/org-mode/testing/")
| (require 'org-install)
| (require 'org)

If I use C-c C-o on the links Org starts my PDF viewer (xpdf 3.02), if
I export the document with the link to PDF and open the result with
xpdf the exported link works, too.

What exactly happens if you try to open the link and which properties
do you have to modify to make the exported link working?
