Weird: blank pages past 25th page if reflown

Has anyone experienced something like that? I've got a bunch of PDF files, that I can view without any problems as long as I don't change the font size. If I do, pages appear as absolutely blank past 25th page. I expect this is some unfortunate problem with caching, but for starters, I wonder whether anyone else experienced that?

For those of you that would like to test it, here's a sample: http://ge.tt/7C3gQaU . Download it, open, resize up, scroll past 25th page (don't jump).

...anyone?
I'd be glad for even the results of a test, to be able to tell whether it's a problem with my device or a bug.

I downloaded the file and yes, it happens on my 350 reader also. Once I set the text size to large, I only got as far as 14 pages before they turned blank. I figured that the medium size text probably gives you extra pages before it starts going blank.

I sure don't have any solution though, other than possibly converting it epub format.

Thanks for the test. At least I'm not an owner of uniquely broken device

As for the conversion: I've tried changing those into epubs, with a disastrous result: unzoomable pages. Haven't looked inside the file, but effectively it behaves like PDF with scanned pages.

Right, after fiddling a lot with changing fonts and what not, I can't get a usable file. It's either blank past 25 page, missing national characters or all screwed up. Crap.
