Here is what I found:

 - On Jessie, evince segfaults on AIM-864.ps with both ghostscript
   packages at versions 9.06~dfsg-2+deb8u2 and 9.06~dfsg-2+deb8u3
   (this is clearly different for me than what is in the bug reports)
 - On Wheezy, evince renders AIM-864.ps with ghostscript packages at
   version 9.06~dfsg-2+deb8u2, but segfaults with ghostscript packages
   at version 9.06~dfsg-2+deb8u3
 - In all cases, gv renders the document correctly

I believe that the short answer to your question is, "yes the same issue
occurs in wheezy."

Do you plan to address this issue, or is there something that I can to
do help speed the process along?
