Public bug reported:

I am using Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx alpha 2 with poppler updated to the
latest available Ubuntu package.

When launching evince from a command prompt to open the attached file,
the file opens normally and renders correctly.  When I press the print
button evince temporarily says it is printing the file and the job
appears in the printer job list window, however the job status is
"stopped" and it never appears at the printer.  After pressing print the
following appears in the terminal:

BAD status: out of memory
BAD status: out of memory
cairo context error: out of memory

Evince does not crash though.

Other PDF's print without a problem.

Uname: Linux 2.6.32-10-generic i686
Packages: evince 2.29.5-0ubuntu1
                  poppler 0.12.3-0ubuntu1
                  libcairo2 1.8.8-2ubuntu2
