possible to open multiple console windows?

I have a couple of external tools that I've configured to open a console window. When I start the tool, if a console window is already open, the new console is opened as a tab of the original console. I'd like the new console to be opened in a new window or to be able to split the console window the same way as we can split the editor window. The console windows are set to be floating.(I have them on a separate monitor)

Have I missed something or is this not possible.

Build 1128
OSX 10.3.2

Try "Pin Tab" in the popup menu of the console tab.

That was my first thought. I tried it and it has no effect. To be honest I've never been completely clear on what 'pin tab' actually does...

I'm just revisiting this as I notice that it's supposed to be fixed in current builds. I don't think I was clear enough about my original point. I wanted to be able to open another window when running an external tool, not another tab in the same window. I'm assuming this is not possible??
