I'm no user of poppler but of Kovid's Calibre (http://calibre-
ebook.com/) and this bug report arises by Kovid's suggestion about an
issue in Calibre itself

The problem seems to be that certain new pdf files
cannot be rendered by pdftoppm util which is used in Calibre.

As a wild guess it might be related to 256 bit AES encryption.

  4) What happens instead is it prompts for a password. This was first
