This is because thunar apparently just spawns a new window that is from
the same process as the currently running thunar when re-run (you can
test this yourself by running two thunar windows and using pgrep to see
how many processes are running, i got only one). WMII opens all windows
from a process on the same tag, this is intended as a feature, yes.
