Well, the behavior of the "Open in tabs" preference is full of conflicts and would
need a serious design effort, which is not very high on my todo currently.

Anyway, opening tabs in a possibly hidden epiphany window when clicking on a link
or on the epiphany icon can be very confusing (where is my window gone ?). We changed
this because people was complaining about it.
I think we have a command line option to force tabs also in that case though, if it doesnt
work it's a bug.
