copia.c mentioned above
Description of problem:
I created a PS using mpage, trying to view the result with evince hanged it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Don't know. Has happened at least a few times, but doesn't happen always.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mpage -1H copia.c > copia.c.ps
2. evince copia.c.ps
Hang (once, trying to reproduce it worked fine after viewing something else)
gs (from ghostscript-8.71-9.fc14.x86_64) shows it just fine.
Created attachment 424182 [details]
copia.c.ps as created by mpage (and which hang evince)
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
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.
