Bug#460283: evince: Go to page immediately jumps back if used after find

Package: evince
Version: 2.20.2-1
Severity: normal

This bug is not critical yet extremely annoying. To reproduce:

1) Open any multipage document in evince.

2) Hit "/" and search for something. Assume you are now on page N. Do
   not hit Enter. Do not close the search panel.

3) Use "Go to page" input box on the toolbar to go to page say M != N.
   Enter inputbox by selecting the whole number. The search panel will
   close as soon as you enter the input box (I find it pretty normal).
   Enter the number of desired page and hit Enter. Evince will go to
   the page specified, but then will immediately go back.

Sounds complicated, but this is quite common workflow for me. I often
search something in the table of contents, then select the current
page number so I can begin typing the new one without having to erase
anything, and enter the desired page number followed by Enter. It is
really annoying to discover that you have to repeat the operation
because evince jumps back.
