Specially crafted postscript file forces a segfault

Bug Description

Running `evince temp.ps' causes a segmentation fault. The file was generated by doing `sudo systemd-analyze plot|a2ps > temp.ps'.

Evince version: "GNOME Document Viewer 3.18.2"
Running XFCE 4.12 on Arch

Sorry I can't find any more detailed logs, don't really know what I'm looking for.

I have attached the file temp.ps
