Description of problem:
Certain PDF documents are rendered so badly by gpdf as to be
unreadable. I've attached an example document that illustrates the
problem. However, this document renders correctly under both xpdf and ggv.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a PDF file with gpdf
2. Some of the files you attempt to open will not render even close to
Actual Results: Sometimes the document renders correctly, sometimes
Expected Results: The document renders correctly.
Strangely, the documents that I cannot view in gpdf render correctly
in either xpdf or ggv. I suppose the workaround is to use either of
these programs, however, GNOME defaults to using gpdf.
Here is a link to one of the PDF documents that doesn't render
correctly under gftp. http://ehrg.cs.wright.edu/~gkramer/example.pdf
