What's the status update on this bug? Why is evince trying to be so
smart and does things differently if another process is already
running. I find it annoying that evince cannot open the same file
twice. I find it very annoying that evince returns to the shell even
though the reason why I called it (open a window to let me view the
PDF) is not complete (I have not yet closed the window).
If this is evince's understanding of usability, maybe it could grow
an option that would make it more compatible with the way Unix
programs have worked for decades and it was possible to wait for
a process to exit to know that now the task was over too?
