Package: evince
Version: 3.14.1-2+deb8u1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

When I select some text, for example a simple word and try to drag the
selection (hold left mouse button and move mouse) the application crashes

This is the output when evince is started from terminal:
(evince:7977): Gdk-ERROR **: The program 'evince' received an X Window
System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)'.
  (Details: serial 3201 error_code 3 request_code 141 (Composite)
minor_code 8)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the GDK_SYNCHRONIZE environment
   variable to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
Trace/breakpoint trap
