  Yes. that is how it works.
  If you select the icon with the RMB, you get an option list, one of
which is "New Window." That opens a new session rather than switching to
an existing one.

OK, thanks.  I fixed the problem by installing the gnome-fallback
package, giving me (if I understand correctly) some of the functionality
of Gnome Classic.  This is a Good Thing since that's what I have on
another system, and having the same behavior on all my systems is also a
Good Thing.

I do have a question about this, though.  How can I move particular
applications onto the Favorites menu?  It seemed happen automagically on
my Debian 8 system but not on my newly-installed Debian 9 system.  I'd
really like to get the terminal and emacs on the Favorites menu.

Thank you,

Bill Wood
