Many thanks for your encouraging comments, and for making this  
available. I'd appreciate hearing how this works out for users on  
various Linux distros, and will be happy to add a link to the TeXworks  
site if people report positive results.

I know this issue has come up on the poppler mailing list at times.  
Could you point me to the patch you're using? I'd be interested to try  
building poppler with this for other platforms as well, and see what  
the effect is on the display.
