Package: evince-gtk
Version: 2.26.1-2
Severity: normal

Evince crashed repeatedly with certain PDF-files. Here's one that always crashed it for me:


Scrolling to page #4 causes the Evince to crash with following error:

$ evince motherboard_manual_ga-ep45-ud3\(r\)_e.pdf
evince: /build/buildd/cairo-1.8.6/src/cairo-font-face.c:191: cairo_font_face_destroy: Assertion `((*&(&font_face->ref_count)->ref_count) > 0)' failed.
