Package: iceape-browser
Version: 1.0.6-1

Iceape fails to use openURL correctly.  For example:

-remote "openURL(http://domain.com/)"

Opens a new window, whereas it should open in an existing window.

-remote "openURL(http://domain.com/,newwindow)"

Generally results in a "The requested URL /,newwindow was not found on
this server.", as the ,newwindow is ignored, and treated as part of the

Example usage can be seen here:


I added a simple echo "$@" to the end of the iceape bash script, and it
does seem as if the command is being passed on correctly.  Unfortunately,
iceape ignores it...
