Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2002-04-11 23:54:13 EDT
To clarify, --existing should only to passed when
browse-url-new-window-flag nil.  The patch I attached does that.

the right patch
Comment 4 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-04-12 11:02:30 EDT
Sounds like a good thing to go in upstream :)
Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2002-04-15 03:08:45 EDT
Yep.  Simon Josefsson told me he already committed a fix into
xemacs-package cvs.  It's very annoying though, so I wouldn't mind
putting a placeholder patch into our xemacs until it appears in our
sumo.  If you don't object, you can assign this bug to me. :)
Comment 6 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-07-25 19:39:30 EDT
Packages have been updated, and the sumo packages from 2002-07-20 are included
in xemacs-21.4.8-10
Comment 7 Jens Petersen 2002-07-31 03:12:17 EDT
Confirmed fixed.
