To be fair, fixing this bug wouldn't stop sensitive information
appearing in swap. Sensitive information also has a tendency to appear
in /tmp and /var as well. The EFF recommends full disk encryption,
which would stop this appearing in clear text anywhere.

Iirc, last time I used this feature it wouldn't let me print the
annotations, and due to the policy of storing the annotations in a
non-standard format other pdf annotation software couldn't recover my
annotations. I ended up printing a screenshot. Having a warning that
this annotation feature was likely to eat my homework and dump it in
an unencrypted partition would've been nice.
