Gnome Have you ever been bitten by accidentally loading multiple instances of the same application in GNOME? When you click on the launcher of an already-running application in GNOME, it will load up another instance of the same application, instead of switching to the already running one. This can lead to bugs and other unforeseen behaviour, which of course isn't desirable. In GNOME 3, this issue has been resolved.

This does not make sense. I want to click on the terminal, or even better use a hotkey to get a second one. I don't want to press Menu -> New Window.

Once again, gnome tries to reinvent the wheel of usability, which is clearly a bad move.

I'm guessing they'll just do what Windows 7 does: middle click for a new window...
