Oops. Why the heck had no one noticed this? If your app was using WindowWatcher as it was supposed to, _blank wasn't properly detected, and would find an extant window. Mozilla has been fine because until recently, WindowWatcher wasn't really hooked up in Mozilla.
(to test this, once I get bug 97514 closed again, just try doing anything that opens a _blank window. like bug 98732, for instance.)

hey dan, we also seem to support (at least sometimes) a window target called '_new'. Do we need to check for '_new' too?
_new is supported inconsistently, and not in the code from which I cribbed this patch, but !what the heck! supporting _new as well is probably step in the direction of consistency. And standards hell. But we were already there. Patch is in, with _new.
