I was not entirely sure about that one, after all the menu doesn't clearly 
indicate whether it's really a 'switch' or rather a 'open as well', but I've 
done it now so it follows the logic of 'switch'. The old behavior can be 
achieved using "Start New Session" and then "Switch". "Start New Session" 
still just starts an _additional_ session, although I feel that's slightly 
inconsistent with the other _switch_ buttons in the same menu.

It's very fast here, that's why I've disabled the splash screen for new 
instances, as it looked ugly seeing it flash up and disappear again. Actually 
the loading should be fast, as all the libraries are already in memory..

That sounds like some quite complicated distinctions would need to be done. 
What's actually contained in a session, except those things? :-)
