Bug Description

The file

(subscription required?) displays nicely in gpdf/xpdf, but not in evince. The
characters are all wrong.

Thanks for your bug. Can you put the pdf somewhere which doesn't require to be
logged, or attach it to bugzilla or mail it?

The file is too large to be uploaded to Bugzilla. Where could I e-mail it to?

I've had similar problems with the Computer and Parts Land pricelist from
<http://www.cpl.net.au/> for the past few weeks. Older pricelists that used to
work in earlier versions of Evince also exhibit the same problem.
