Description of problem:
If ggv is already running, and I click on a link to a second pdf document, I get nothing. If I do it from the command line, I get an error message.
I guess ggv is trying to connect to the same process and open a second window, instead of just launching a second instance. It's being too smart for its own good, because that doesn't work.
This has been true for more than a year, I think.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ggv file1.pdf &
2. ggv file2.pdf
Actual Results: (ggv:22250): GGV-WARNING **: Could not get GGV control: 'Unknown CORBA exception id: 'IDL:omg.org/CORBA/COMM_FAILURE:1.0''
(ggv:22250): GGV-WARNING **: Failed to create a new window.
(ggv:22250): GGV-WARNING **: No windows could be opened. Exiting...
Expected Results: Just fork a second copy of ggv and show me the document.
