I did this and have attached the traces.  Both show the PDF files (I
used different ones in each Emacs) being opened early in the trace: in
emacs-26 the image was immediately displayed and the trace continued and
then paused and I killed emacs; in emacs-master the first trace lines
showing the PDF file correspond to the raw PDF being displayed,
following by the same kind of trace lines as in emacs-26, but then two
lines with the PDF file again, which is when the image display appeared,
after which the trace paused and I killed emacs.  As in all my other
test runs, here again the image appeared without any keyboard input, but
interestingly and surprisingly, this time it took less than 10 seconds,
as compared to 30-60 seconds in most of the other runs (which were
without tracing).
