Recently, poppler was having a bogus memory allocation bug. It had creeped into okular. Some pdf files were rendered okay; while some others flashed instantaneously and closed. The problem was on both of my systems openSUSE and Gentoo. As soon as poppler fixed the issue, Gentoo was quick at releasing it in stable tree. It was back in February.However, not until a couple of days back was the patch provided by openSUSE. Meanwhile, the inability of accessing my documents was really pissing me off. As my linux experience has evolved, I have gradually drifted away from openSUSE; though I love it as my first distro and still have it on my laptop.
