The following PDF is only 5 pages long, 4.8M.
However calling pdftotext on it takes approximately 3min and cpu goes to 100%.
Other Longer PDFs take only a few seconds and cpu usage is not mental, so this behaviour looks weird.
Here are some extra details:
pdftotext version 0.37.0 ( compiled from the latest stable release)
compiled with the following options:
/configure --disable-libopenjpeg --disable-poppler-qt4 --disable-gtk-test --disable-cairo-output --disable-splash-output --with-prefix=/usr/local
OS: Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, OSX
