Bug Description

Binary package hint: eog

Is there ever going to be an option that will allow only one Eye of Gnome instance? For example, I have one picture up, double-click another image in Nautilus and then it will load up that image over the previous one? It can get a little frustrating to have to close all the individual image instances. Thanks!
