Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?

A PDF export under libreoffice.

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or

I exported a text written in the Century Catalogue font

   * What was the outcome of this action?

Evince-gtk displays shit (except when font size is at least 14 AND bold, but it
is displayed as a hollow font)
xpdf on the other side display it correctly
same thing with pkg evince under wheezy

   * What outcome did you expect instead?

Text being correctly displayed
