RSI is rather aware of this problem. They are planning a fix for the next
update. In the mean time, if you can prove to them that it's a nuisance
for you, you might be able to get a temporary license to work around it.
They did state that a way around it is that you can start as many copies
of the IDLDE from the SAME xterminal as you want... of course, hating the
IDLDE as I do, this wasn't really an option for me.
