I've got the most recent version of Mountain Lion installed, as well as the most recent version of Chrome.

When I've got Chrome set as the default browser, and if I close out all the tabs before I quit Chrome itself, if I click on an external link (e.g., from within an e-mail, Tweetbot, etc.), two Chrome windows launch—one with Google (my set homepage) and one with the target of the link.

Not closing out all the tabs before I quit Chrome does the trick, but what specifically could be causing this?

You've set the homepage to open on startup. Go to settings cmd+, check the On startup option there. You can disable it from there too.
