I have a paper with an equation in the title, and I would like to include the equals sign in the pdf metadata by using the hyperref key "pdftitle", by including it as in the following:

\hypersetup{pdftitle={P = NP}}

But when I typeset this, the metadata stops just after the P.

So my question is, how can I get the symbol = to appear in the pdf metadata with hyperref?
I'm using TeX+DVI, in case that matters.

After Ulrike kindly pointed out the there was no problem. I tried to just restart to see if the problem evaproated... and it did! I'll leave this up in case someone else has something similar happen.

This works fine for me. The Reader shows the title P = NP with both compile routes (pdflatex, latex+dvips+ps2pdf)

\hypersetup{pdftitle={P = NP}}

I'm using hyperref.sty 2010/06/18 v6.81g Hypertext links for LaTeX
