Well, "quite unstable" is not something I can fix. If you are more
specific, there are maybe single issues that could be fixed.

No, there is no patch. I haven't even verified yet that it is fixed in
the newer upstream versions, but even if it is, there is no specific
changelog entry for this. Also, this is probably a bug in libpoppler,
which does the .pdf rendering, and not in evince.
