Some PDFs crash Documents

Certain PDFs cause Documents to crash. A common factor for mine seems to be that they're largish (over 1 MB) and whole books (scan/OCR from older books).

Example: http://www.sciencemadness.org/library/books/gergel_isopropyl_bromide.pdf

Just to comment that this is still happening.

I've chevked and it is an issue with Poppler itself that has been corrected upstream but the version in Mer is lagging behind. I've asked on the developer mailing list and they advised me to backport the fix (trivial), but I didn't have time since...

I've submitted the patch (originally written by KDE guys) to Poppler for Nemo. Now, I can display the document you provided without crash on the phone : https://github.com/nemomobile-packages/poppler/pull/2

Well, I don't know when it will go in our phones, but @pekka-vuorela from Jolla is actively monitoring this, and he actually even proposed a pull request yesterday to upgrade Poppler to latest version (0.36). So let's wait, it's corrected now and it will come in a near future.
