Thank you for responding so quickly, and with very helpful information.

I will keep the progress in track? Is there an easy way to get this
issue on an the agenda of a good developer. I am willing to donate €
15,- for a good upstream fix, since the problem prevents me to use
evince in my working environment. (maybe a quick fix is a separate build
that disables the pixbuf)

Best regards,
