Document that

Hi. I have found that glib version of poppler (tested with evince and zathura) uses incredible amount of memory for some specific file (see attachment). Okular at the same time has reasonable memory usage. 

How to reproduce:

Open attachment document, set scale to 200 % and start document paging. At the end of document application uses about 2 GB of memory. 

Used software version: 

I am using 0.28.1 poppler at Alt Linux though Ubuntu users also confirm issue 
for 0.26.
