Description Warren Togami 2004-11-30 23:38:50 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041111 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
gpdf rapidly spikes memory usage to almost 1GB (virt) when you PageDown from page 254 to 255 of this large PDF.  On my 1GB RAM laptop, this causes a swap storm and sometimes OOM.  If the system survives the swap storm, it settles to about 505MB (virt) when viewing page 255.  PageDown again into page 256 reduced memory usage to 60MB (virt).

xpdf-3.0.0 and ggv-2.8.0 are unaffected by this problem.
