Description of problem:
Opening some PDF files cause Scribus to consume more RAM (above 3GB) which uses enough to bring 4GB RAM desktop/laptop to their knees. I was unable to capture the problem because I was forced to hard reset.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download attached PDF file
2. Open with Scribus
Actual results:
Cause total freeze of system and RAM consumption exceeded 3GB.

Expected results:
PDF file should be open

Can you try the F-10 rebuild of the package that was recently pushed into rawhide, available at https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1269801? It is a newer SVN snapshot for the upcoming 1.3.5.

Freezing Scribus when opening a PDF file

Better in term of RAM consumption but the opened/converted PDF slows down for a minutes. Some PDF files render incorrectly.

Well, it's a problem of carrying a snapshot in the distro that was requested by other users ...
Comment 4 Dan Horák 2009-05-21 09:55:34 EDT
Any change when 1.3.5 beta from F-10 updates is used?

File test 

For attachment 337395 [details], converted PDF is blank. I include a new pdf named grand_sport_configurator for a simple text. Text are intact minus the colours and images are missing. Opening a PDF no longer slow down as I tested it on 2GB RAM XNote LT20.
Comment 6 Dan Horák 2009-06-15 02:31:50 EDT
Please open an upstream bug at http://bugs.scribus.net for such functional issues. Unfortunately we (the package maintainers) have not enough knowledge and other resources to dig into this kind of problems.
Comment 7 Luya Tshimbalanga 2009-06-15 17:19:01 EDT
I opened bug on http://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=8160 so i suggest to keep track with. This current report can be closed because RA?M issue is no longer the problem.
