      Description

      Customer reported an issue when uploading a pdf file. The transformation of the pdf generates a temporary file that grows endlessly (several GB in a few seconds). Only by stopping Alfresco the transformation stops.

      The file has been submitted by the customer under a NDA and only for investigation and testing purposes. Please don't make this file public anywhere. It's a 100Mb Pdf file that can be downloaded here:

      ftp://ftp.alfresco.com/support/Jira_Related/MNT-19611/EDE00401-EDA010-0003_ZCDD1383384-C01008225_S1060006A_Rev01.pdf

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Bootstrap a Vanilla version of Alfresco 5.1.2
      2. Upload the file to any folder
      3. Identify the folder in <tomcat_dir>/temp/Alfresco/<year>.... where the document is being transformed into a txt file.

      Expected behaviour:

      Temporary file is created with the transformation of the pdf and size is just a few MB.

      Observed behaviour:

      Transformation enters into a loop and the file grows in a few seconds to GB.
