Public bug reported:
There seems no way to run evince at multiple X screens at the same time.
Whenever one starts evince, the first instance will run on the specified
screen (ether with environment variable DISPLAY or with --display
option). But when launching a second instance it shows up on the screen
of the first instance, regardless of display settings.
To reproduce this, run on a multiscreen machine:
evince --display :0.1 &
evince --display :0.0 &
which gives you two instances on the same display 0.1.
While running two instances of evince on different X servers works
** Affects: evince (Ubuntu)
