This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,

Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

With browse-url-browser-function set to browse-url-galeon, browse-url
by default loads the url in an existing tab.  This is fine.  I want to
load in a new tab, so I set browse-url-galeon-arguments to ("-n"),
since "galeon -n URL" is the command to load in a new tab, but this
doesn't work: it still loads in an existing tab.

I believe this is because the function browse-url-galeon is hardcoded
to add an "-x" argument (load in existing window) just before the url,
so the command becomes "galeon -n -x URL" and the later argument "-x"
overrides the earlier "-n".

My Galeon is version 1.1.3.  I don't recall having this problem with
Galeon 1.0.2.  Possibly Galeon changed the order of precedence of
conflicting arguments between versions.
