Bug Description

I have tried to open epub file with atril, provided I have read that atril started to support epub format.

I run it from command line as "atril filename.epub" and I see it opens windows with normal atril controls and "Loading..." yellow notifier. And then it crashes immediately without any debug/info/error message in CLI from atril itself, only "Segmentation fault (core dumped)" system line provided.

What I expected is that epub backend has at least minimal input validation, and hence I would see error messages on parsing "bad" epub (if it is bad) if something goes wrong.

What I can say for sure - epub container (effectively ZIP archive) has gone test by "unzip -t" just fine. I see inside files are: mimetype, META-INF/container.xml, and subdirectory full of .xhtml & .jpeg files with content.opf and toc.ncx in addition. So I have good reasons to believe epub is correct and fine.
