PDF Form : evince shows the date the PDF form was designed instead of the current date

Bug Description

The attached file is an official form by the French Ministry of Interior that one must fill out using one's computer and then print and sign.

The date at the bottom left of the first page is supposed to be the date of signature. However, it is filled with a date in July 2011, and cannot be modified. I checked the properties of the PDF file, and the 19th July 2011 is the date the PDF file was last modified.

When I open the same file in Adobe Reader, this date field shows today's date, as expected.

Actually, I am not sure whether this is a bug in evince or the form was designed improperly. I am not fluent enough in PDF to check this.
