I'm not sure, but please check the value of `doc-view-current-cache-dir'
in the doc-view buffer.  Have a look at this directory.  Does it contain
the png files of the document?

My suspicion is that you tried to open that doc once some time ago,
doc-view created the directory but conversion failed.  Now it thinks
that it can load the png files because the directory exists.

Try `M-x doc-view-clear-cache' or remove the directory manually.
