Description of problem:
If you browse to page 13 of the PDF presentation mentioned in the bug's URL, using evince 0.3.2-2, you'll see a table that looks very odd: some horizontal lines in the table extend all the way to the left margin, while others are barely visible. Vertical lines extend a bit lower than they should. Also, there's some barely visible background on most pages that shouldn't be there; it's supposed to be uniform. None of these problems are present with evince in FC4.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open the PDF presentation in the bug's URL with rawhide's evince
2.Browse to page 13
Actual Results: The lines that form the table are all messed up, and there are some unintended abstract-painting-like background.
Expected Results: The page should be displayed just like FC4's evince did.

Broken rendering from rawhide
I did mention it worked on FC4. This is what I get on yesterday's rawhide.
Ok. Thanks for the screenshot people. changing status to assigned
Still broken in rawhide :-( Is FC5's evince going to be unusable for
presentations, and I'm going to have to explain to people every time I deliver a
presentation why I don't use it, and use and recommend xpdf instead? :-/
There appears to have been some debatable progress: now it displays some of the
lines correctly, and some others not at all :-/
Still broken in rawhide :-(
Yay, this appears to be fixed!
