This is odd... with evince it renders like with the poppler plugin, while with 
flaxpdf it renders like in mupdf. They were both compiled against the same 
version of poppler, though evince came from the Arch repositories and I 
compiled flaxpdf myself. I didn't try okular because I would prefer not to pull 
all those KDE dependencies...

What does this mean?
