Bug Description

Binary package hint: evince

When pressing the page-down key a couple of times in presentation mode quickly, evince shows a black screen, instead of the slide it's supposed to show. After pressing page-down or page-up again, it displays one of the pages again.

I forgot to mention, I saw that this bug also existed in 2.26.1, as someone reported in the mailing list: http://<email address hidden>/msg01559.html

I'm seeing this bug even without compiz (I've disabled compiz because of a different bug with my video driver).
My video card is Intel 945GME, and I'm using the intel video driver (version 2.9.0 I think)
