Saving a document fails with error "Error opening file '[path to file]': Permission denied"

evince (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

`evince` seems to create a file with mode 0400 which doesn't make a lot of sense. The directory is a regular directory created in `nautilus` and doesn't cause any trouble with other applications (e.g. `libreoffice` can store documents without problems), so that there seems to be no reason for the failure.
