In case it's of interest, evince (version 0.3.0-2 from unstable here)
can handle this with aplomb, although it seems to have a problem with
images at present.  Nevertheless I'm able to get the majority of my
PDF reading done with it.

I just had a go at chapter64.pdf with xpdf and my X server crashed,
which is impressive.  I can't remember the last time I've had X crash.
