How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:

Why do you expect that to happen ?

Comment 2 Steven Usdansky 2007-05-08 10:40:26 UTC
Two reasons:
1. It used to work that way in Fedora
2. It works that way in Ubuntu

Comment 3 Christopher Aillon 2007-05-08 15:18:29 UTC
Are you sure that it's evince and not Adobe's acroread?

If it ever worked that way, it was a bug.
