Bug#475327: evince maps window with incorrect size

Package: evince
Version: 2.20.2-1
Severity: minor

I'm having some trouble reproducing this, but here is what happened:
 1. I clicked on a pdf in galeon, and let it open it with evince.
 2. Evince popped up and got placed by the window manager (AFAICT)
 3. Evince loaded the document, and resized itself, such that it's placement
    was stupid. (a good chunk of it ended up on the other monitor)

When I try to reproduce it, it now opens the window with it's previous
geometry, and stays that way after loading the PDF.

After further experimentation, it seems that it uses the previous geometry
for a document of the same page size (remembering multiple
geometry -> page_size mappings) and only does the stupid resizing when it
encounters a document with a new page size.

Sorry, but I think xpdf does the right thing here...
