I don't understand. Why are you surprised? This is how every multitasking
Under Gnome, if I launch Totem twice, I get two Totem windows. Under
Windows, if I launch IE twice, I get two IE windows. Under Sugar, if I
launch Write twice, I get two Write windows.
As an Activity developer, you should not need to worry about this. The
Rainbow isolation system means your instances can't talk to each other
anyway, unless they're accessing files in $SAR/data/.
