Hi Martin,

Do you think it indeed might be the case with how impressive determines
the hyperlinks? interesting that it is the same upstream version of
pdftk, so must have been smth happened within +dfsg Debian revision.

I found a workaround: downgrading pdftk from 1.41+dfsg-7 to 1.41-3
causes hyperlinks to work in Impressive.

Presumably something changed in the pdftk output that confuses the
ad-hoc PDF parser in Impressive.  The PDFs created by the new version
of pdftk still work in xpdf, with hyperlinks:
  pdftk input.pdf output output.pdf
