PDF document that crashes poppler

The attached PDF file, an application note from Texas Instruments, crashes Evince, epdfview, and Okular when it is opened.

I am running Gentoo Linux (~x86) and using poppler 0.10.2 and Evince 2.24.2, Linux 2.6.27-gentoo-r4 and gcc version 4.3.2.

The backtrace from Evince is:
