Description ivan 2000-09-26 18:14:44 UTC
Clicking on the netscape icon (running netscape-communicator), with a
Netscape window 
open now causes the original window to close, and a new one to open. This
also happens 
with "ulrview" in mutt. This changed in 6.95, and is the same in 7.0. In
6.2 it used to open a 
new window (keeping the original one intact), which seems much better and
friendlier :^)

Hrm - wierd. I assume that netscape must be segfaulting sometimes - having
restarted X several times (to try to find details for another bug), I seem able
to startup new Netscape windows whilst keeping the original window. It seems a
somewhat transient problem :(

I have not been able to reproduce this here.
