Sorry don't bother wasting time on this, the input pdf wasn't actually the
same, my fault.
The problem is that the input file is empty.
I think however that pdftoppm should not enter a busy-wait loop on stdin
trying to rebuild the xref table and eating up 100% cpu in such cases... maybe
a blocking read call is possible? (I'm not skilled enough to tell myself).
