Hi list,

in our bugzilla I stumbled over PDF enclosed, where page 33 of this document 
is shown very very slowly in both evince and xpdf (approx. 20-40s or even more 
depending on computer performance). 

The problem is caused by pdf file itself, yes. As you can see in the second 
attachment, images in this pdf consist from many small pieces, for example the 
only image on page 33 contains more than 160.000 such parts.

But some way how render it efficiently exists, because acroread reads it 
somehow in few seconds. Is here someone interested? I am not experienced 
enough :-(. If there is a chance to find someone who wants to look into that I 
can create bugzilla entry for this feature.
