Same here (joyride-2258):

1. download a pdf to the journal using Browse-94
2. visit the Journal and use the mouse over palette to "start" the pdf
3. Read-48 launches
4. Read displays 0/0 and no document (a mainly grey screen)***

***Random OT suggestion; now that all activities show a launchable  
icon somewhere (no hidden activities any more), perhaps Read should  
invoke the journal object picker if no document is indirectly provided.
