There is another open Emacs problem wrt reverting non-textual buffers,
see <https://debbugs.gnu.org/16515>. Don't know, whether it is related.
This problem looks different in many ways. It is about auto-revert, and the buffer is reverted but switched to a different mode.
Most importantly this problem is not related to tramp.
No, that's not expected. Do you see the same problem with local PDF files?
No. Locally both revert-buffer & doc-view-revert-buffer work as expected (i.e. new file is displayed).
The problem (i.e. new content is not displayed) happens only on a pdf file opened via tramp.
If time permits I'll check; unfortunately I'm very short in time these
days. Maybe somebody else could say something about.
Thanks a lot,
