latest kpdf-3.5.1 uses poppler now thanks to flameeyes
the bug was fixed in poppler-0.5.0-r3
and gpdf users should upgrade to evince whihc uses kpdf ;)
For xpdf I think we should patch it to use poppler, because no one of printing cares about it.
gpdf seems to have beeen fixed independantly.
poppler has been fixed for this bug.
xpdf has been fixed for this bug.

Gpdf is not fixed. Handling it on bug #120985 to start stable marking here.

Stable on hppa. There's a depends problem with ~s390 while commiting xpdf.

Please also mark poppler-bindings-0.5.0 stable, both poppler and poppler-bindings should have the same stable-version.
