I am using GTK front-end, but most of the code I am talking
about is in subsystem desktop. So I assume that the issue is
On File->New_tab Netsurf optionally either copies new tab
or opens a blank one. The history is copied in both cases.
I guess it can be argued that the history needs to be
preserved in the former case but not in the later.

When you follow a link in a new window or new tab, preservation of the
local history is the intended behaviour for NetSurf.
The File -> New tab menu option should not preserve local history (neither
should File -> New window), so if it does that sounds like a bug.

That sounds like a bug too.
Which front end are you using?
