[Bug 1369028] Re: Slow thumbnail generation and scrolling


I've tested the PDF included by Christopher and I observe the exact same behavior as with some of my 
other PDF documents.

I think the fix should be also rolled out for the last LTS version 14.04

  Slow thumbnail generation and scrolling

Status in evince package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

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.
