PDFBOX-4307: check object type before casting to COSDictionary in PDDocumentCatalog.getDocumentOutline

>          Components: Parsing
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.11, 3.0.0 PDFBox

>            Assignee: Timo Boehme
>            Priority: Minor
> In PDDocumentOutline.getDocumentOutline() the 'outline' is read as dictionary object
and directly cast to COSDictionary. Normally this is ok as it should be a dictionary. However
in a bad PDF as I have it in my collection (unfortunately I'm not allowed to disclose it)
the object is an array (COSArray) which leads to the ClassCastException.
> Since the outline is an optional information the best we can do here is to ignore the
'outline' data if its not a COSDIctionary and return 'null'.
