  Evince back and forward buttons does not keep last position when

Status in Evince document viewer:
Status in “evince” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Scrolling in Evince does not seem to set the "last" location when
  using internal hyperlinks and Backward and Forward buttons.

  1. Scroll to a place in the document where there is an internal link /
  hyperlink that links to another place in the document.

  2. Click the internal link to go to another part of document.

  3. Click "Back" button to try to get back to my original scrolled

  4. BUG: I am taken somewhere else in the document instead of the
  location of where I clicked the hyperlink.

  See the attached demonstration PDF which has 4 test cases. Test cases
  2 and 4 apply to this bug.
