Yes, that can be annoying. Thankfully, because Nautilus remembers the
position and size of a window when it was last opened, it gets better
with time. I have a folder filled with many PDFs. Previously, to open a
specific PDF I'd have to scan the list until I found the one I wanted.
Now thanks to spatial Nautilus, I can quickly find the one's I use most
frequently by automatically homing in on their location on the screen.
Because so many have similar names, this is faster than even tab
completion. (And now that I have evince showing thumbnails in Nautilus,
it's pretty easy to find less frequently used PDfs also.)

A giant thank you to the developers of nautilus and evince!
