------------------ Additional Follow-up Comments ----------------------------
I'm not sure what context you are referring to (ie what application launching 
mechanism you are talking about).



Certainly I like the behavior the NeXT workspace used to haver, where double 
clicking on an application in the workspace would simply bring the app windows 
to the front if the app was already running, but a keyboard modifier would 
force the launch of another copy of the application.

I see that as an issue for the workspace manager ...

If it uses the NSWorkspace method launchApplication:shoiwIcon:autolaunche: the 
behavior should be the one we like.  Are you saying that there are 
circumstances where this method does not work properly?

Or are you talking about some other situation entirely?

Summary:  Duplicate application launching

Original Submission:  If I launch an application, that is already running, i 
get an alert panel asking me about renaming, ignoring or aborting. I would 
expect that the existing application instance will be activated instead. So the 
behaviour should be: If there is already running application, activate it, if 
there is not, launch it.



Btw. are there any situations, where one would like to have two instances of 
one application open? How are they compared to the usual situations?



>From the point of user, I consider this to be a bug. Moreover, it is another 
>additional confusion.
