It seems to me that it's poppler rendering it incorrectly:

1) The attached document is rendered in a completely different way 
than in acroread: we show the icon bottom-left, acroread shows it top-left.

2) Also, in acroread the icon always has the same size, while in poppler it 
scales according to the current zoom level.

I guess fixing #1 should be fairly straightforward and I'll work on it 
tomorrow, about #2 there's some extra work to do.
