Bug#564541: evince-gtk: does not save window size on exit and restore on startup

Package: evince-gtk
Version: 2.28.1-1
Severity: wishlist

A nice feature to add to evince-gtk would be to save its window size
(and whether it's maximized) on exit and pop up at that size on startup.
Currently it always starts at about two thirds of my 14-inch laptop
panel; with the thumbnails pane, that leaves the page far too small for
reading.  For now I'm switching to the full Gnome version, since that
already has this feature, even running in XFCE.
