Proof of concept
There is an infinite recursion in pdftocairo parsing the attached PoC2.pdf. As a result of the infinite (or very deep) recursion all the stack space is consumed and the application crashes.
The recursion happens when the following functions are called over and over again in my case the backtrace had ~32k calls:
#31040 0x00000000004373cb in Gfx::drawForm (this=0x94c770, str=0x94df98, resDict=0x0, matrix=0x7fffffffd5f0, bbox=0x94df28, transpGroup=false, softMask=false, blendingColorSpace=0x0, isolated=false, knockout=false, alpha=false, transferFunc=0x0, backdropColor=0x0) at Gfx.cc:4979
