           Summary: printing some PDFs from evince is crashing our Xerox
           Product: cairo
           Version: 1.5.15
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: pdf backend
        AssignedTo: ajohnson at redneon.com
        ReportedBy: seb128 at ubuntu.com
         QAContact: cairo-bugs at cairographics.org

The bug has been opened on

"We have a Xerox Workcentre 7228 which has been in regular, daily use for the
last year.
As people in the office are upgrading to Hardy, the printer is starting to
crash quite a lot.

I will shortly be attaching a PDF and the Postscript output from gutsy and
hardy to this bug.
Printing this PDF from Gutsy produces a printer error, but the printer
continues to function. From Hardy it causes the printer to completely crash
(which is clearly a printer bug, but may indicate that poppler is doing
something wrong too).

PDF that may kill Xerox Workcentre printers  (124.4 KiB, application/pdf)"

The ps generated using evince has some font rendering issue, using the poppler
pdftops on the pdf works correctly, that seems to be a cairo issue
