In seamonkey, I can eliminate this behavior by checking ‘Open links
passed from other applications - The current tab/window’ under ‘Links
from other applications’. 

These configuration options live under ‘Preferences->Tabbed Browsing’.

I checked the ELinks ‘Options->User interface->Window tabs’ and could
not find an equivalent.

Does this mean that I should request an enhancement..?

If so, how do I go about doing that?

Thanks,
