evince (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: evince

Probably either evince or apparmor.

Open a pdf with an email link.
Click the link.
Evince displays:
   Unable to open external link
   Failed to execute child process "thunderbird" (Permission denied)

In the syslog:

Oct 2 09:44:09 dellie-linux kernel: [86464.899245] type=1503 audit(1286037849.671:22): operation="exec" pid=13311 parent=13310 profile="/usr/bin/evince" requested_mask="::x" denied_mask="::x" fsuid=1000 ouid=0 name="/usr/lib/thunderbird-3.0.8/thunderbird.sh"

Either Evince or Apparmour should be fixed so that this never happens.
