I asked Martin Schulze about this (specifically DSA-979) and he said that
there was "probably" overlap, but fixes were based on a patch by Derek
Noonburg, the xpdf author, and no CVE names were assigned at that time.
As you probably know, distributions sometimes don't know the details of
security fixes by the original developers/maintainers.

I hate answers that raise more questions :-/ but I might have to go with
"unspecified" vulnerabilities.
