To test newer versions of evince I have installed evince via the snap

After installation via snap, the snap version can be started using its
different program icon (I hope you can understand what I mean, I clicked
the "9 dots" icon in the bottom of the task bar on the left, typed
"evince", found two versions using different icons, and verified the
version via "Show Details").

* 3.34.2+git4.91cbe4fe (from 2020-06-01) crashes with all the RFC PDF documents 
of this bug and bug #1849888 (which does cast some doubt about that bug being 
fixed in evince version 3.34.1-1).
* 3.36.6+git2.ce03847a (from 2020-06-27) crashes as well.
* 3.37.2+git65.582b220e (from 2020-06-30) does not start, so result for the 
problematic RFC PDFs.

So at least _this_ bug is relevant to more recent versions of evince
than the 18.04 LTS default.

For the default latest/stable channel the snap package shows the
following information:
