displays garbage in the selection

You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. evince http://learn-gs.org/library/etc/1-4-whorf.pdf
2. select some words, for example, the tile: "THE RELATION"
a sequence of "~" is seen in the selected region, no letters.
("Internally", the selection works fine: you can test it by pasting the
selection to another application, you'll get the correct words.)
The letters are seen.
In some files, the letters are correctly displayed when selected: e.g.,
/usr/share/doc/wordnet/pdf/lexnames.5.pdf from wordnet-2.1-alt2.
Now I started to understand that this problem has no very good solution.
Probably, this is so in http://learn-gs.org/library/etc/1-4-whorf.pdf as it is
because it is a scanned paper (an image) with added words. So, there are no
fonts inside, so they can't be properly displayed.
So it's rather a feature request: in such cases not to show the "~"s instead of
the text but to show the selected text in a default font or to show the image
and indicate that a real text has been selected (say, by showing the selected
text in a "tooltip").

на новой версии evince
Приложите, пожалуйста, pdf'ку, на которой проявляется бага
