Description Nathaniel Smith 2007-06-05 21:32:50 UTC
This PDF containing a circular gradient, produced using scribus:
Looks like this when rendered with evince 0.8.1 (using poppler 0.5.4, all from debian sid):
I.e., there are horrible aliasing/moire patterns.

When rendered with xpdf (v3.02), the result is beautiful and clean:
Spot checks reveal that it also looks perfect in Adobe Reader on Win32 and OSX, and Preview.app on OSX.

In case it is useful for some reason, I also put up the scribus source file:

(In real life this arose with the background of a presentation I wanted to give via PDF.  Unfortunately, the talk is insufficiently psychedelic to live up to this background.)

I can confirm the problem with evince (libpoppler 0.5.4, Ubuntu feisty, i386) and that it looks fine with xpdf 3.02.  It also looks fine with ghostscript (gs 8.54).
