In the conversion of doc-view-convert-doc, you made a typo:
doc-view-conversion-buffed should be doc-view-conversion-buffer

Also, I suggested using C-n and C-p to scroll the image. You changed
the bindings of C-v and M-v to scroll the image and added C-n and M-p
to do next/previous page. I think my suggested bindings are closer to
what people would expect (e.g. - C-v would move to the next page while
C-n would move down in the current page). In any case, if you decide
to keep the existing bindings, you should probably at least change M-p
to C-p.

I've sent this followup to the emacs help newsgroup.

The random feature this time was breaking on dvi generation. ;-)
