# Apparent conflict when using hyperref and pdfcomment together

There appears to be a conflict with using the hyperref package and pdfcomment. Take the following example:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{pdfcomment}
\begin{document}
\end{document}

I get a warning message from hyprerref related to pdftex being called twice and that it changes nothing. I don't really like to leave a document with warning messages on the compilation. If I change the order of the packages, then there is an outright error. The error relates the the hidelinks option, though I think it is probably a problem with other options too. If I remove the option, then the code will compile without error or warning (provided that pdfcomment is loaded first.)

Any ideas about a resolution for this: should I be passing a bug report onto either of these two parties?

I don't think you need to be worried about this: what you're getting is a Warning message, not an Error message:

Package hyperref Warning: Option `pdftex' has already been used,
(hyperref)                setting the option has no effect on input line [xx].

This warning message is generated by LaTeX while it's setting up the pdfcomment package, which (among others) also loads the hyperref package.
