makes a volcano stop your plane.

We are specially interested in possible regressions introduced to pdftotext 
because of the change on how text is extracted, mostly we are seeing 
improvements but it's not easy to test so any help there is welcome.

Testing, patches and bug reports welcome.

Next release will be poppler 0.13.4 (0.14 Release Candidate) scheduled for 9
