Looking a little bit at dcop, I cannot found a function createNewTab or
something like. I found function createNewWindow but could figure out how to
make it run :
dcop konqueror-4420 KonquerorIface createNewWindow('www.google.fr')
bash: syntax error near unexpected token `('
Is there any hidden createNewTab function??
