Afraid I can't give version numbers... but every so
often I get a PDF from folk and...
well, the first was from the US's Social Security Administration
(yeah, I'm in the Colonies) and Preview took a long time
of chugging away, then gave me only partial images of some
of the pages.
A friend of mine, using a more recent version of Preview,
had it open just fine.
File was modest size, just basic text (well, PDF'ed), of
four or five pages.
More recently I received a 50 page file from another
gove't agency. Again, just basic text.
A bunch of pages were completely blank. I sent the
agency a note asking if, perhaps, they had PDF'ed and
kicked over the nominally blank back sides of the pages.
They said no.
I pulled the file into a different viewer (Adobe something)
and the blank pages were fine.
So yeah, this sometimes happens.
