Bug Description

Ubuntu 12.10
Evince 3.6.0-0ubuntu2
NTFS drive with 755 and 644 permissions - fstab options include: uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=0022,fmask=0133

Whilst saving a copy of a PDF to the NTFS drive, and pressing the "Create folder" button, I can enter the name of the new folder but pressing return to create it gets the following error message:
"The folder could not be created
Error creating directory: Permission denied"

Dmesg reports:
type=1400 audit(1379431072.830:251): apparmor="DENIED" operation="mkdir" parent=1 profile="/usr/bin/evince" name=2F6D656469612F6A6F686E2F57696E646F777320446174612F55736572732F4A6F686E2F446F63756D656E74732F5068756B65742F4B616D616C61204261792050726F6A6563742F506C616E6E696E672F5661534C61622F323031332D30392D31372F pid=4534 comm="evince" requested_mask="c" denied_mask="c" fsuid=1000 ouid=1000

The operation works with the same permissions on my ext4 /home/Documents folder.

There is no problem creating the folder on the NTFS drive from Nautilus, so the workaround is to create the folder first in Nautilus, then save from Evince.
