Bug Description

This is pretty much the same bug as reported for debian at . I'm not sure how the Ubuntu and Debian bug trackers interact (if at all), so reporting here as well. (I've tried confirming the bug there, but not sure if they'll accept a package with "ubuntu" in the confirmation version...)


running evince on some pdf files, including causes the following error messages to be output to the console a number of times:
"*** BUG ***

Set a breakpoint on '_pixman_log_error' to debug"

Just hoping someone cares here's another data point. The -w (preview) option comes up with a different CRITICAL.
Both requests seem to operate OK. It's just the error message that messes up the display in Terminal.

evince ItWorks.pdf > /dev/null

Easy way to generate the error message if you've got gtkmm-3.0: compile and execute the code at Grab the bottom of the window and drag it up until the column header row begins to be occluded.
