Created attachment 38586 PDF triggering the bug
I found this bug while using Okular, a KDE viewer program which uses poppler. The original bug report is here: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=250674.
Sometimes, when converting a PDF file to PostScript for printing, poppler renders the page with thicker lines and bolder text, producing an incorrect result. This behaviour seems to occur only under some circumstances (which I couldn't determine). I'm attaching a file which triggers the bug when printed with Okular (and thus converted to PostScript) and another version which is printed correctly.
