I don't know...
Looking at the code I don't see why this doesn't work, it follows the
same code path for one-window and in-new-window mode. I am still running
2.0.0 from Ximian Gnome2 RPMS and only tried the new code on my
self-compiled CVS version, so maybe it's a problem with the latest
snapshots? Any suggestions are welcome...
