Bug Description

Binary package hint: evince

When I double click on a word in first column the whole text in second column is also selected. The same happens when I double click inside the second column, the first column is also selected. Take in cosideration that I am not moving the mouse when double clicking.
This behavior was observed in a pdf file with the name "wow, That's a Lot of Pakets" retreived at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Root_nameserver at reference 1 at the bottom of page.
Note that this behavior is not observed through the whole document, but in a lot of places in it.
