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
perfectly.
