eog -n doesn't behave as expected

Bug #988209 reported by Steven Pemberton on 2012-04-25

eog (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

"eog --help" includes the information:

  -n, --new-instance Start a new instance instead of reusing an existing

This suggests that eog without a -n should use an existing instance. It doesn't. In fact "-n" seems to have no effect at all.

I can't confirm this bug on Ubuntu 12.04. It seems like it always does a new instance for me.

That's exactly the problem. It never seems to use the *same* instance. A new instance is always created whether you use -n or not.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. The issue you are reporting is an upstream one and it would be nice if somebody having it could send the bug to the developers of the software by following the instructions at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Upstream/GNOME. If you have done so, please tell us the number of the upstream bug (or the link), so we can add a bugwatch that will inform us about its status. Thanks in advance.
