  pdf printing on karmic fails: pdftopdf crashed on signal 11

Status in cups package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in cups source package in Karmic:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: cups

  In Karmic (9.10), printing a large pdf file (or, one of its pages
  containing a large image) using Acroread (8.1.2) fails (document not
  being printed).

  When printing fails , the job is reported as "pending" and fails upon
  retry a few minutes later.

  Extra info:
  Karmic with cups_1.3.11-1_i386 
  In cups/error_log: 
  PID 324 (/usr/lib/cups/filter/pdftopdf) crashed on signal 11!
  [job 424] Empty print file!

  Printing a page containing only text does work, printing the large
  page using Evince works as well.

  Downgraded cups to 1.3.9-17, dependency libpoppler4_0.10.5-1ubuntu2.2
  and the same file is printed correctly using Acroread and Evince

  Thanks, Robert
