No problem with this specific pdf (debian-amd64, sid, 2.6.11 kernel), however
I've had xpdf run up to 99%cpu and stay there with the July 2005 issue of TUX
Magazine, found at http://tuxmagazine.com - I can read the first 3 pages,
then it fails has to be killed.
Kpdf, on the other hand, can read it perfectly, cover to cover.
