            Bug ID: 350850
           Summary: Kmymoney does not open multiple files correctly
           Product: kmymoney4
           Version: 4.7.2
          Platform: Archlinux Packages
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
          Assignee: kmymoney-devel at kde.org
          Reporter: mark.blakeney at bullet-systems.net

I open 3 kmy files in parallel frequently as they are distinct and unrelated
financial entities. When I click to open the 2nd file, kmymoney pops up a
prompt "Another instance of KMyMoney is already running. Do you want to quit?"
I always select "Yes" and then it opens fine. This prompt is annoying,
superflous, and inconsistent with all other apps. KMM should just open the 2nd
file in a new window, or if that file is already open in an existing window
then just switch focus to that existing window like all other apps do, e.g.
word-processors, editors, terminals, etc. If that is difficult to do with the
current implementation of KMM then at least fix it to only prompt to quit if an
existing open file is attempted to be opened (i.e. never open the same file
twice) but do open any other file without any prompt.

This bug is obvious and has existed for many years but has probably not been
complained about because clearly most people only use one KMM file.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. As above description.
