filename is a wrong argument if not .pdf - Linux Acroread 9.5.1

We recently installled acroread 9.5.1 on Linux .  When we try to convert a PDF file that does not have a .pdf extension, we get the error shown below.   This does not happen if the file has a .pdf extension or and does not happen with the 8.1.4 LINUX version that we have. 


Is there a way to get the 9.5.1 version of acroread to not care what the name or extension of the input file is?



uname -a

Linux dev-bnc3-ctl-app-web 2.6.18-128.1.10.el5PAE #1 SMP Wed Apr 29 14:24:53 EDT 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux


acroread -v



acroread -toPostScript -level3 -pairs P10500079pdfdoc0375.001

P10500079pdfdoc0375.001 : is a wrong argument. Please refer acroread -help for the correct usage
