Package: evince
Version: 2.30.3-2+squeeze1
Severity: normal

The following LaTeX document initially displays fine with evince, but
after cropping it evince erroneously sees the resulting PDF as an
empty PDF container.



                        One line of text.\\
  	  	        Another line of text.


    \fbox{Crop Me!!\row}

  pdflatex latex_a3_paper.tex

  gs -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -o latex_a3_paper_cropped.pdf -c "[/CropBox [65 850 303 890] /PAGES pdfmark" -f latex_a3_paper.pdf

To follow this example, save the text above to a file
"latex_a3_paper.tex".  Then run:

  pdflatex latex_a3_paper.tex


  gs -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -o latex_a3_paper_cropped.pdf -c "[/CropBox [65 850 303 890] /PAGES pdfmark" -f latex_a3_paper.pdf


  evince latex_a3_paper_cropped.pdf

To see latex_a3_paper_cropped.pdf render properly, open it with "gv"
or "emacs".
