Evince hangs on pdf files from latex

Bug Description

The current evince hangs on pdf files produced by latex, either directly by
pdflatex or via dvips and ps2pdf. Other pdf files work fine. The evince window
opens and processor usage goes to 100% until I kill the process (or at least for
a few minutes, I haven't tried letting it run longer). xpdf displays the file as
expected. This is on a Turion AMD64 laptop running current Breezy.

evince version: 0.3.2-0ubuntu2
libpopplerc2 version: 0.3.3-0ubuntu3

I have the same problem with evince 0.4.0 with poppler 0.4.2.
evince doesn't display any files created with pdfelatex, I had to install xpdf
to view my PDFs. Any hope of thi sgetting fixed in 5.10? It's really annoying.
