When I try to open one of my pdf files with evince, it will crash with exit code 134 and this message prints out:

! SyncTeX Error : No file?
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::logic_error'
  what():  basic_string::_M_construct null not valid
Aborted (core dumped)

Also, downgrading evince won't work.
I'm able to open that pdf on the earlier versions of Ubuntu.

Also to note: I'm using Ubuntu devel branch.

This looks to be a bug that was fixed in poppler 0.72.0-1. As a workaround to updating, okular works for me.
