This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.

Comment 3 Horst H. von Brand 2010-08-17 14:19:32 UTC
With evince-2.31.6-1.fc15.x86_64 it takes a rather long time to finally display the one page in the attachment. The second time I open the same file it is almost instantaneous. Some issue with the fonts used perhaps?

I guess I'll take this over to mpage.
