Just downloaded the nightly build and this behavior (a new frame when a 
new file is opened from the finder) does not seem to have survived.  I

on my desktop.  On the other hand, when I am working on a given project, I 
am most likely to open other files in the same or close-by diretories, so 
it is easy and natural to do this from within Emacs and put those buffers
