What's happening is that Konqueror is calling gimp-remote -n once for each
file, instead of listing all the files on a single invocation of gimp-remote.
Since gimp takes a while to start up, gimp-remote thinks there isn't one
there, so it starts new instances of the app.
Konqueror should be fixed to do the right thing, instead of doing contortions
in gimp-remote to fix this.
