Ok, I found the bug. Your pdf embeds a thumbnail, so by default that's
what's used by tumbler. In your case, the thumbnail is broken or empty,
I'm not too sure. If you have control over the pdf generation, than try
not to produce a thumbnail or make sure it's valid.

Other than that, there's not much we can do.
