this was discussed a while ago. you need to change file association
for texts. there's a parameter when passed to kate, it reuses an
existing instance. i'm not on my PC right now, just type "kate --help"
in konsole, and see what it is. change the file association
accordingly to pass that parameter everytime a file is selected to
open with kate :)
