After the last update a certain PDF file fails to render in both Okular and Evince. All I can see is blank pages. There are no error messages.

Most documents render OK with these viewers.

The problematic file is rendered correctly by mupdf. So I suppose there's something with a library that is used by both Okular and Evince, but not mupdf. I suspected it's libpoppler, tried to merge the 9999 version of poppler, didn't help.

Edit: Confirmed poppler. I downloaded the previous poppler release from their repo, compiled it, and the issue went away.

Which version(s) of poppler are good? Which are bad? Is this PDF one that you can share with the project so that they can reproduce the bug?
