Bug Description

Binary package hint: evince

I opened a small (240kB) pdf document in evince, read few pages and left opened. After few minutes I looked to system monitor and saw, that evince is consuming 166MB of memory.

I'm running Ubuntu 7.10 with kernel 2.6.22-14-generic. Evince is from GNOME 2.20.1.

ps aux | grep evince
kiko 6935 0.2 17.4 224032 178628 ? Sl 16:23 1:03 evince /home/kiko/(...).pdf
