Ok, I just tried and it seems to work.
My test is with firefox and to click on the menu "Save page as ...":
    - v0.9: the new window goes to "net" tag and not on the tag "work"...
    - v hg tip : effectively the new window goes to the two tags "net" and
"work". It is good!!!


when you click to "Preferences" the new window (not a transient one) goes the
tag "net" and not also to the tag "work" (this is very curious when you do that
with only the tag "work" selected and you don't see the preferance window...)
Is this the normal wanted behaviour?

Thanks for the patch...
