Bug Description

On Lubuntu 15.04, when trying to open Evince with GTK+ Broadway backend, Evince reports incomplete errors and then ends.

In first terminal:

$ broadwayd -a -p 8889 :2
Listening on /run/user/1000/broadway3.socket

In second terminal:

Unable to init server: Could not connect: Permission denied
Cannot parse arguments: Cannot open display:

(There is nothing more in the output, program ends.)

gtk3-demo or gitg have GUI in a browser as expected.

Not sure if related or if it is perhaps expected, but I cannot see the socket file (with sudo or without):

$ ls /run/user/1000/broadway3.socket
ls: cannot access /run/user/1000/broadway3.socket: No such file or directory
