The comment above shows my description is not clear. :(

Let's explicitly describe a normal application. If you open a.doc from the file
manager then libreoffice opens that doc in a window. If you later open b.doc
from the file manager then libreoffice immediately opens that doc in another
window. Later you open a.doc again from the file manager (while libreoffice
already has that a.doc open in an existing window but perhaps hidden,
minimized, or forgotten about) then libreoffice just immediately brings the
existing open a.doc window to the foreground. There is no question of
corrupting the a.doc file or having "missing data" because the app never allows
2 open windows on the same file. This same logic applies to just about every
common application and file type in all modern linux, windows, or mac desktops
(e.g. for pdf files etc). Kmymoney should obviously do the same thing with kmm
files.  Most users rarely use multiple kmm files in parallel and that is the
only reason this long standing bug has never been addressed.
