[gedit-list] Shell commend to open existing file in existing window

Something just changed!  Ubuntu 1304. -- recently updated with the usual lack of information about what was 

How do use a command line to ask that a text file be opened in a new pane in an already open instance of 
gedit?  I have been doing it for years with a simple gedit command with a file path but suddenly gedit 
insists on opening a new window.

--new-document creates a new document in an existing window but I don't want a new document.  I want to open 
an existing document that way.

--new -window  Does the opposite of what I want.

--version returns 3/6/2
