Instead of opening in the same tab, they should open in a new tab at least for app tabs. It probably doesn't make sense to do it for all tabs, but maybe it does.

Do you mean they should open in an app tab if one is already open?

Basically, he meant instead of trying to open it in the App Tab, open it in a new regular (i.e. non-App Tab) tab.
This seems to be a (valid) extension of bug 575561. Apparently, the issue of clicking links to external sites from an app tab has been fixed -- they now open a new tab. But from what I can tell, application handling does not respect this rule, instead overwriting the existing app tab.
