Special characters missing in evince recent files list

Bug Description

In the "Recent files" list menu, when you have a pdf with a filename such as file_with_underscores.pdf
it appears on the list as filewithunderscores.pdf, i.e. the underscores disappear and the words get concatenated.

Not sure if this is by design, filing as a bug just to make sure it's noted.

Upstream report was closed "RESOLVED OBSOLETE" on 2014-10-28
as interface to show recent files has changed.

Filename that include underscores showing correctly when
using evince 3.32 in Ubuntu 19.10 (dev)

Issue may have been fixed by changing the interface so closing
