Bug Description

Case-insensitive search of unicde chars in PDF documents is broken

Test case
1) Open the attached document in Evince
2) Select the infinity symbol ∞ (U+221E) and copy it into clipboard
3) Press Ctrl+F and paste the symbol from the clipboard into the search field

The symbol should be found in the document

Check in different pdf renderer using poppler than search still work correctly

Sebastien, though the Russians the same symbol in mathematics for the infinity, the infinity symbol ∞ itself is not Cyrillic. Have you tested their solution, whatever it may be, simply to make sure that that's the same issue?
