Wow - that's beyond the call of duty. :-) "Interesting" user

does once you're used to it.

Right, that's what we see.

Either of those solutions would be acceptable to my user I think. The
first one is what the documentation appears to say it's supposed to
do. I realise that this could be hard to do, because it would
probably do nasty things to e.g. terminal windows, depending on
whether the terminal window was opened by starting a fresh copy of
terminal, or using Ctrl+Shift+N. The second one is probably easier to
do without incurring nasty behaviour for other applications. I
suppose it could always be an additional configuration option...
