Yes, I read that. That's not what's happening here.
What was happening on my machine is that the first time I pressed F1 I would get
one tab to open up to a hyperspec page. The second time I pressed F1 I would get
two tabs to open up to the same hyperspec page. The third time I pressed F1 I
would get three tabs to open for the same hyperspec page. Etc., etc.
I think I know why it's happening. F1 is hooked to this:
(concat "file://" common-lisp-hyperspec-root)
(common-lisp-hyperspec-format (char-to-string (char-after (point))))
(common-lisp-hyperspec (thing-at-point 'symbol)))))))
And this loads hyperspec every time I hit F1. Which means that the same symbol
is pushed every time I invoke this function key, unless I change the "push" to a
"pushnew". Simple and effective change, for me at least.
