When I click a link in a terminal window (like when I'm using trn or mutt) or in the Quassel IRC client, instead of creating a new window or tab in the existing Google Chrome session, it creates a new instance of Chrome. And even if I shut that one down first, it sort of "takes over" so if I shutdown Chrome or log out and log back in, the "Continue where I left off" On Startup option means I only see the one link, instead of all the tabs I had open before.
Is there something I can configure to make those applications use the existing Chrome instance instead of starting a new one?
(This is Kubuntu 12.10)
Update: it appears this behaviour, of starting a new session instead of using the existing one, only happens when it restarts Chrome after I log off and back in. If I start Chrome from the menu button, all works correctly and links clicked in Konsole or Quassel open up in new tabs on existing windows.
