Description Anton 2011-07-18 10:56:44 UTC
I filed a bug against Evince for this issue. Evince developers told that it is an issue of poppler. So I do a re-post here.

Original bug:

Test case e-book:

Problem is visible on these screenshots:

poppler 0.16.7:

poppler 0.12, compared with xpdf:
http://omploader.org/vMndlaQ - Almost no text in Evince
http://omploader.org/vMndlag - Correctly rendered next page
http://omploader.org/vMndlaw - Partially displayed text at the next page

Reproduced with Evince 2.28 and 3.0, with poppler-cairo backend, on x86, x86_64 Arch Linux system.
