I use evine 0.5.2 with poppler 0.5.1 (Ubuntu Dapper). The pdf was created from http://cass.no-ip.com/~cassidy/files/brol/test.tex.
I can confirm this with Thai text. Thai language has above-level vowels, which are similar to accent mark in term of display.
Some of these vowels are missing when selected. This doesn't happened with Adobe Reader 7.0 on the same Linux machine.
