Yes, that is correct (and has been fixed in the Debian Security Tracker
a few days ago: http://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/source-package/poppler)

I blame it on the new console mouse mode in Emacs 23 which broke copy&paste
from a different tty with GPM ;-) (Disabling gpm-mouse-mode helps, as I
found out later.)
