    Crashed while opening PDF document

    Description

    I clicked on a link from Epiphany which opened Evince for viewing a PDF document. Evince crashed before actually rendering anything at all.

    Here is the link to the document: http://link.to.document/doc.pdf

    I will attach the backtrace of the crash attach backtrace as text document after creating the bug

  • If Evince crashes include a backtrace, use this GettingTraces guide for help.

  • If Evince doesn't thumbnail or index or render properly please indicate the type of document you were viewing and if at all possible include a link to the document.
  • Try not to attach your document to the bug as we don't really need all your documents sitting in the bugzilla database.
