This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
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,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.2.1 (i386-debian-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)

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

I use galeon as standard browser for browse-url by using the following
lines in my .emacs:

        (setq browse-url-browser-function 'browse-url-galeon)
        (setq browse-url-new-window-flag t))

However, the new-window-flag does not seem to work. The command line
produced by browse-url-galeon is something like

    galeon --noraise -w -x <url>

The -w and -x flags seems to be conflicting: -w should open a new
window, while -x should use an existing window. Maybe it would be
better to use

    galeon -n <url>

if no new window should be opened (but rather a new tab) and

    galeon -w <url>

for a new window.
