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.
