[patch #7857] addresses this issue by putting the duplicate file test inside the file_editor rather than the file_editor_tab.  I.e., file_editor_tab signals the file_editor to check for duplicate name; if no duplicate name, file_editor in turn signals the sender() to go ahead and open (or save) the file.

Related effect: it is possible to save a file under the name of another already open file.

when double click on filename in directory window, should only open a single version of file. If you repeat click on file, multiple copies are opened. Instead, should just switch to editor view.
