Description of problem:
When viewing the following pdf http://dl.alphaworks.ibm.com/technologies/faces4laszlo/faces4laszlo_whitepaper.pdf
evince uses 80% - 90% CPU and kept getting memory until I had to kill it. This was on a PIV 2.4Ghz machine with 640M RAM. There seems to be a massive memory leak which results in unchecked memory consumption.

either update the target product or close it ?
