I've had a quick look last night and the problem really is that the
designer actions do not get "unmerged" when designer document goes out
of focus. This works just fine for katepart. I'm wondering wether the
designer xmlgui client needs to do this itself or wether xmlgui should
do this automatically??

And yes, xmlgui somehow feels like kmdi in KDevelop 3.3...
