It works iff I change the script to:

<pre>
if (get_window_class() == "Evince"
    and get_window_type() == "WINDOW_TYPE_NORMAL") then
   debug_print("Evince: " .. get_window_name());
   unmaximize();
   os.execute("sleep 0.1");
   screen_w, screen_h = get_screen_geometry();
   set_window_geometry(screen_w - 861, -25, 850, screen_h);
end
</pre>

(Not sure what is the better way to sleep for devilspie2 — http://lua-users.org/wiki/SleepFunction)

I have got the rule:

if (get_window_class() == "Evince"
    and get_window_type() == "WINDOW_TYPE_NORMAL") then
   debug_print("Evince: " .. get_window_name());
   unmaximize();
   screen_w, screen_h = get_screen_geometry();
   set_window_geometry(screen_w - 861, -25, 850, screen_h);
end

It is applied properly when Evince is launched from a shell but not when it is created from a Firefox download (the position is correct but not the height of the window).  However, if I then restart devilspie2, all Evince windows — regardless of how they were launched — are resized to the desired dimensions.
