Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Unfortunately, we cannot work on this bug because your description didn't include enough information. You may find it helpful to read "How to report bugs effectively" http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/bugs.html. We'd be grateful if you would then provide a more complete description of the problem.

We have instructions on debugging some types of problems at http://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingProcedures

At a minimum, we need:
1. the specific steps or actions you took that caused you to encounter the problem,
2. the behavior you expected, and
3. the behavior you actually encountered (in as much detail as possible).
Thanks!

I'm attaching ps file that shows error in evince. It has three pages, yet evince shows only one (it shows that there are more pages , but is unable to render them). gv can render this file correctly

(I compressed file just for purposes of attaching it here, for all tests I used it uncompressed).

Thanks for following up! Using that fiel I can confirm that it is affecting this. When openning up this I took get the first page loaded and it fails to load the following two. Unfortantly I don't have the abilities to go any further into why but hopefully this can be followed up with someone with more abilities and knowledge than myself. Again thanks for following up!
