Package: evince
Version: 3.32.0-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Open some pdfs and move to any page different than the first.
Close evince.
Open any pdf then open a new evince window from the hamburger
menu and choose one of the previously opened pdfs.
They load at page 1, not at the previous page. If you open 
them from the file manager then the previous position is correctly
