User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.6 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
If I have galeon running on one display, then log in from a second display and
try to run galeon, the window is opened on the first display. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
0. galeon &
1. Xnest :5 &
2. setenv DISPLAY :5
3. galeon &

Actual Results:  Galeon issued the message:
Message: Galeon already running, using existing process
and opened up a window on the root display

Expected Results:  Galeon should have opened a window within the Xnest display.

I think that galeon uses factories to create new instances, instead of basing it
on the display.

I'm not going to fix it but it if it gets fixed upstream I'll take it.
