Dear list,

I was wondering if anybody could explain me why zathura is quite slow during
the first search? Try the following file as an example:

What I observe:

    - During the first search zathura becomes unresponsive and when it has
      "finished searching, then it becomes responsive again and everything is

    - Memory usage goes up from about 180MB to about 320MB during the first
      search, but subsequent searches do not cause an increase in memory.

    - Subsequent searches are also much much faster, almost instant.

The above things make me wonder if we create another copy of all zathura pages
and then use them for searching or what? Where does the memory go? I'd really
love to use zathura full time, but sometimes search functionality is just too
resource intensive.
