Description Dululu 2005-10-14 06:31:22 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050915 Firefox/1.0.7

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.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
evince-0.4.0-2 poppler-0.4.0

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open linked to PDF file
2.Watch machine grind to a halt and start swapping

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
