When selecting the text of the attched PDF in evince 3.14.1,
some characters appear garbled. The _unselected_ rendering is fine,
the garbling only happens upon text selection.

I can confirm this on current cairo and evince master.  In the attached PDF, selecting certain characters makes them disappear or turn into squares.
