Shortcut key Ctrl+L no longer sets cursor to page selector in 3.10.3

Bug Description

* Impact
Ctrl+L stopped working (should focus the page number box)

* Test case:
- open a document in evince, press ctrl+L, see if the page number box is selected

* Regression potential:
check that keybindings work as they should


In previous versions of evince, when I pressed Ctrl+L the cursor focus would be set to the page number box. It made it extremely convenient to navigate documents. Since I upgraded to Ubuntu 14.04 / evince 3.10.3, this seems no longer to work. Would be great to get the functionality back. Thanks!

Just tested evince-gtk 3.10.3-0ubuntu10.1 and Ctrl+L works as expected. :-) Thanks!

Now the evince shortcuts for zoom fit ('f') and zoom width ('w') are working again in version 3.10.3-0ubuntu10.1. Many thanks!
