    Clicking on application launcher starts another window. What should I do?

    If I remember correctly, clicking on the application in launcher started the application if it was not already open and focused on the application if it was already open. I had to middle click to start another instance.

    But, recently, whenever I click in the launcher, a new application window is started, irrespective of whether one is already open or not.

    What should I do? A bug? Or a new feature?

    I am using 12.04 LTS and 12.10 in two machines. Both fully updated. Both are showing the same behaviour.

    does this happen with all programs or with a specific one?

    Thanks. For my one machine (12.04) the apparent bug is no longer there after running an upgrade this morning after the post. For my another one (12.10) I will check and will let you know.

    Things are fine with 12.10 machine as well after running an upgrade.
