Bug#809388: evince: evince aborts after a few seconds without an error message

Package: evince
Version: 3.18.2-1
Severity: normal

I'm working on a rather sophisticated document with LuaLateX using PDF
Optional Content Groups (OCG), cf.


(the source is available in the repository).

Evince often aborts without an error message. Looks like switching the
windows is one of the factors which trigger this, but in general I can't
see any regularities.

Tt is especially annoying when using AUC-TeX, so I mentioned the problem
first on the AUC-TeX list


but then nobody was able to reproduce my problem.

Best regards
