  Slow thumbnail generation and scrolling

Status in “evince” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  After a GTK update this morning (2014-09-13, via update manager on
  14.04. LTS), the thumbnail generation on evince 3.10.3 became very
  slow. Whenever loading the next thumbnail image, evince completely
  hangs. This makes reading documents very annoying.

  This seems to be related to these bug-reports: 
  https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=691448 (!)

  The document opens fine in other viewers (like xpdf)
  When the thumbnails side pane is disabled, the problem goes away.
