Poppler extremely slow to render this PDF file 
Submitted by S.

Certain PDFs opened in Evince or Atril using the Poppler backend are extremely slow to render, to the point of being unusable. This is on a very fast Thinkpad laptop with a quad-core processor and an SSD. The same PDFs render instantly using a Windows PDF reader (http://www.tracker-software.com/product/pdf-xchange-viewer) (running under Wine!!).
This file is only about 2MB, but it takes many seconds to render each page: https://freekidsbooks.org/download/103
On the other hand, some long, complex PDFs with images render quickly with Poppler, like this one: http://www.pwc.com/gx/en/paying-taxes/pdf/pwc-paying-taxes-2015-high-resolution.pdf
Thanks for looking into this.
