Topic: annotation line behaviour -- cany anyone confirm?

Can anyone help confirm this is a bug or point out why this wouldn't/shouldn't work?

I am using /pdfmark in my .ps to insert an annotation after the coordinates have been translated. What I'm seeing in the PDF is that a /text annotation appears in the correctly translated location, but a /line annotation appears in default device coordinates.

The March 11, 1999 PDFSPEC manual says:
"Note All coordinates and measurements in text annotations, link annotations, and
outline entries are specified in default user space units."

Am I missing something? Is there a way to pass a /line annotation the /L [ ] array coordinates in current user coordinates?

See attached .ps sample file to illustrate.
