Created attachment 125279 [details]
a pdf with solid, dotted, and dashed lines (with arrowheads)
This problem still exists for gpdf and also for the most recent evince
(0.5.3-1), but apparently only on Fedora (no problem on Ubuntu).
Ubuntu doesn't have this problem as they use the splash rendering backend. This
is a problem in the cairo backend (in cairo, actually) which should be fixed in
the upcoming cairo 1.2 release.
Upgrading to cairo-1.1.6-6 seems to have fixed the problem with evince but not gpdf.
