viewing long pages, evince seems to choke on simple test file

I was playing around with long pages in xdvik and thought I would return
to things known to work. I made a simple test file,
cat pagesize.tex | uniq -c
1
1 \newcommand{\mjms}[1]{ }
1 %\input{mikemailxxx.tex}
1 %\documentclass[aps,secnumarabic,balancelastpage,amsmath,amssymb,nofootinbib]{revtex4-2}
1 \documentclass{article}
1 %\usepackage[a4paper, total={10in, 80in}]{geometry}
1 %\usepackage[paperheight=80in,height=78in]{geometry}
1 \usepackage[paperheight=80in,height=120in]{geometry}
1
1 \begin{document}
1
1 %\input{dum_clip.txt}
1001 \section{test}
1
1 \end{document}
and ran
2181 pdflatex --output-format=pdf pagesize.tex
2183 pdflatex --output-format=dvi pagesize.tex
2193 history | grep pdflatex
to generate pdf and dvi outputs for viewing in evince.
Neither seemed right although they were more or less similar
with the first page blank and the second starting
around section 40 test and ending at 318 in dvi
and 249 in the pdf file. The dvi output
starts like as show below ( I modified dviasm to output
a hex op code address ). It does look like page 1 is
more or less blank but then page 2 is trying to
start with "1 test." Is there something simple wrong
with my latex source? I have to admit I did not look
too closely as I had hoped to avoid problems
but thought I may have hit an overlfow somewhere.
If there is some simple thing to change the scale,
the numbers in the preamble look scary for integer math,
that may be all I need to know.
Thanks.
