Package: kpdf
Version: 4:3.4.2-2
Severity: normal

When viewing large pdf files kpdf seems to use an unreasonably large
amount of X pixmap resources.  After loading iand paging through a large file
(eg the IA32 SDM http://www.intel.com/design/pentium4/manuals/index_new.htm )
"xrestop" reports that kpdf is using almost 700MB of pixmaps (machine has
2GB physical RAM).

I have the performance/memory usage option to "Normal", so this seems

Changing this setting to "Aggressive" makes no noticable differece.
Changing to "Low" fixes the excessive pixmap use, but with a fairly
severe performance hit.

Also tried on a machine with less physical ram, and the limit seems to be
one third of physical ram.  I don't know if this limit is imposed by kpdf
or Xorg.

I'm closing this bug as I was not able to reproduce it with a newer
version of kpdf. Feel free to reopen it if necessary.
