[poppler] Differing number of items returned from get_text{, layout} for glyphs over page edge

Hi All,

I attach a PDF containing one phrase where the last letter overlaps the
page bounding box. Unless I'm mistaken, poppler_page_get_text_layout is
returning 18 glyphs and poppler_page_get_text is returning 17.

Can anyone else confirm? I'm running 0.24.1.

Is this a bug? Can I safely filter out layout rectangles which are off-page?

Thanks in advance,

- Peter
