It happens only with some documents. Did not happen prior to 11.10. Attached screenshot shows same PDF document as displayed by Document Viewer (evince) on the left, and as displayed by Adobe Reader on the right.

Here's an example:

Is that still an issue? Could you attach an example to the bug report if that's the case (the url in the description is not working)
