Bigger PDF (but not that big) take forever to load and open?

When opening really small PDF files from my Onedrive cloud (like 300 Kb, 1 Mb...) with EVINCE, it opens in a breeze on my system, as expected.

But when I try to open relatively larger PDF files (like, 4 Mb), Evince hangs on a long time, more than a minute, and finally either it opens the PDF, or it craches.

May not be due to the nature of the files (PDF in my case), but related to the file size?

$ rclone version
rclone v1.65.0
- os/version: ubuntu 23.10 (64 bit)
- os/kernel: 6.5.0-14-generic (x86_64)
- os/type: linux
- os/arch: amd64
- go/version: go1.21.4
- go/linking: static
- go/tags: none

System storage=Onedrive

~$ rclone config redacted
type = onedrive
token = XXX
drive_id = XXX
drive_type = personal

May it be that Evince is caching file(s) smaller than some amount? If so rclone can also be used to cache files by adding --vfs-cache-mode=full to your mount command. Rclone can be configured to only use a limited storage for cache and/or expire cache after set amount of time. I don't think evince can be configured to cache data in ways other than it defautly does.
