Hmm... learning even more.  =:^)

You are correct.  4.6.4 works the same way.  The missing bit appears to 
have been noting that the tab bars appear on both views, and that 
switching the tab in one does NOT switch it in the other, thus allowing 
them to separate.

Thanks.  Konsole is more powerful than either Dotan or I realized. =:^)

But I expect I'll still use a fully separate konsole window far more 
often, because it's so easy to do once konsole is invoked with a hotkey, 
and because they are then separate windows, where one can be closed or 
even more opened, without affecting the other(s).

But in true kde form, it recognizes that not all users are the same, and 
allows a user to work with truly powerful tools in the way that best fits 
their work flow, even as it adapts over time. =:^)
