You are obviously not using latest cvs, and failed to tell us what
version you're using. Also you probably didn't use softskip, even
though the docs say pullup requires softskip.

Finally, the "Bottom-first field" (are you sure you copied that
right??) error messages indicate that either you're putting other
filters before filmdint/pullup (will not work!) or your input file is
horribly broken.
