3) What is expected to happen via https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/evince/+bug/1150112/+attachment/3560850/+files/test.pdf is that it looks as it does in Adobe Reader.

4) What happens instead is it looks as if the top 5% of sentences are removed as per https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/evince/+bug/1150112/+attachment/4277028/+files/samples.jpg .
