Do you have this problem with other audio players?

I'm running 9.10 so this may be different; but under Tools > Preferences, click the Interface button in the left pane, and check "Allow only one instance".

If I already have an open VLC player I tend to drag a file to it if I want to play it.

If you're running the default VLC that comes from the repositories, you might considering installing the latest VLC.
