Creating a set of tabs and bookmarking all of them to the toolbar places a
stacked window icon on the toolbar with the name designated by the user. This
process can be repeated with a different set of tabs and the name can be set to
identical. Both tabsets with the same names will then show up in the bookmark
toolbar. Since there is no custom icon to differentiate between the tabs there
is no way (short of managing bookmarks) to differentiate between the two.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open a few tabs and bookmark all to the bookmark toolbar w/ name mac 411
2.repeat with different tabs and the same name

Actual Results:  
Chimera places the correct sets of tabs in the bookmark toolbar, but allows the
same name to be used multiple times.

Expected Results:  
Prompted the user that the name was in use and offered a replace, cancel, or
rename dialog.

It is possible that one would want this feature (especially if the site with the
first tab had a favicon that displayed on the toolbar). If the situation
warrants having this feature then a dialog of :replace, rename, cancel, or ok
might be better. This bug is minor to trivial now, but it could cause confusion
and later problems

Why shouldn't one be able to create multiple tab sets with the same name? I
suggest WONTFIX.

Well, I wouldn't want to have a lot of files with the same names or for everyone
to have identical cars. Essentially, it's confusing. I can see how some people
might want to do this and I'd don't think you should be prevented from doing it,
but having the default behavior be something that creates confusion is the main
reason I think people should at the very least be prompted about having the same

I think it's up to the user to name their tab groups appropriately. Any warning
could quickly get annoying for some people.
