Input to reproducing the bug

Description of problem:
Attached .ps file will crash Evince

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Document Viewer 2.24.2

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open attached file
Actual results:
Evince's window opens and suddenly closes. Command-line gives the following message:

[fernando@death_star euler]% evince  10.ps
evince: cairo-xlib-surface.c:934: _draw_image_surface: Assertiva `ret != 0' falhou.

(I believe this translates as: "assertion `ret != 0' failed.")

Expected results:
Evince properly opens the file OR at least gives a proper error message in it's own window (instead of the CLI).

Additional info:
The file opens on okular (although it will be displayed black-and-white, and I believe it should be colored - not sure about this).
The file consists in a Haskell profiler report generated with the hp2ps tool.

Hi Fernando,

it works for me. There is noevince: cairo-xlib-surface.c:934: _draw_image_surface: Assertiva `ret != 0'falhou.
on the commandline anymore.

Maybe it was fixed with 2.26.2.
Does it work for you now with an updated version of evince?

Which version do you have now?

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2009-11-18 06:11:10 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '10'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 
Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2009-12-18 02:59:39 EST
Fedora 10 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-12-17. Fedora 10 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
