Bug Description

When a PDF that is open with evince changes, it used to reload it automatically. This was very convinient for working with TeX. In the current alpha (Trusty), this doesn't happen any more. Evince is version 3.10.3-0ubuntu6.

Thanks, I can confirm that and tracked it down to https://git.gnome.org/browse/evince/commit/?h=wip/gmenu&id=c100e1fd670e4cdca935c867b652bcda82360fde that we backported recently

Lars said he's going to have a look to get a fix, assigning to him then, thanks!
