Thanks, this works. I just changed one line in buttonrelease():

- newwindow(NULL, &arg, e->state & GDK_CONTROL_MASK);
+ newwindow(NULL, &arg, 0);

Now I can open links in the same tab/window with button1 and in a new tab/window
with ctrl-button1 as I wanted to.

I'll have a look into this as well soon.
