Proposed patch to backport the support of recent PDF
Description of problem:
Some PDF files cannot be opened with Evince because poppler 0.5.4 fails to recognize the security used (even if no password is required).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the PDF attached with Evince on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5
Error: Unsupported version/revision (4/4) of Standard security handler
Error: Incorrect password
Evince is able to open the PDF (without password being prompted).
This is fixed upstream as part of git commit bf7e0e98 but that's a huge commit which is the merge of xpdf302 branch in HEAD.
A less intrusive patch to backport just that functionality in poppler-0.5.4 is attached.
