Thank you for the useful link.  As I stated in my first post, I didn't
checked for all the bugs I found (I planned to do it only if they're
real bugs).  Now, after having read the evince BTS page, I found it as
bug #341551 [1].

I completely agree about being synced with upstream, even when it
doesn't follow maintainer's personal preferences.

As I wrote in my first post, I'm no more a GNOME user, as I use mostly
stumpwm [2] and sometimes ratpoison [3].

Thank you for your time, stopping here for evince in the GNOME menu.

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
