FWIW, firefox does this occasionally too. A "killall firefox" usually
does the trick.
But with firefox, it at least pops up a little dialog telling you that it
believes another instance is running. It'd be a bit confusing without
that. Even if it's sometimes frustrating seeing the dialog, it's better
than not knowing the problem, I guess.
