Now this has been added, here is a very common use case, which seems incorrect
(reported by Kevin):

1) User starts kepler - gets blank graph frame, with new welcome screen in front

2) User dismisses welcome screen, and is left with blank graph frame

3) User then does "File->Open" and opens an existing workflow

4) The workflow then opens in a *new* graph frame, leaving the original, empty 
graph frame on the screen.

Proposed resolution: 

BEST: at startup, if user does the above, then the workflow gets opened in the
*existing* blank graph frame. Subsequently-opened workflows open up in *new*
graph frames, as before

INTERIM: if we don't have time to implement the above for this release, then
check to see if we are in the above use-case, and if so, close the blank graph
frame after the first workflow has been opened

Any other thoughts/comments/ideas?
