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

You don't really need to look in the dvi, (la)tex will warn you already in
the log about what is happening.
The main problem here is that a page break is not allowed after a section
heading so the page is massively overfull, if you change that to
1000 lines of
\section{test}zzz
Then you get more reasonable output. The visible page does start around
section 22, but the geometry package warns
Package geometry Warning: `tmargin' and `bmargin' result in NEGATIVE
(-2890.8pt
).
`height' should be shortened in length.
