[elinks-users] Following links creates new tabs.

I'm looking at http://news.google.com and when I follow pretty much any
of the links on the main page, I see that ELinks displays the
corresponding news article in a new tab, so that after accessing half
a dozen such articles, or even the same article half a dozen times,
I end up with half a dozen ‘google news’ tabs. 

This does not appear to be the case if I use the ‘seamonkey’ web browser
instead of ELinks.

Could anybody confirm that this is not due to a mistake in my
configuratiion, which I doubt since I haven't changed anything lately
and this behavior started a few weeks ago. 

If recreatable, if there is a simple workaround to avoid this?

As an aside, there used to be an #elinks channel on freenode, but
I can't seem to be able to access it anymore. 

Is it temporarily unavailable or is it gone for good?

Thanks,

cj
