Well, remember that the primary action for the CTRL+N binding in Gedit is to start a new document. It just happens to open the new document in another tab rather than a new window (because it is a tabbed application).

I took a look at Openoffice, Abiword and Gnumeric, and they all use CTRL+N to create a new document, just like Gedit.

This is exactly why we haven't just uploaded a change yet
