Yup, this isn't good. Currently, we allow opening multiple instance of the same solution into a workspace, which isn't useful and could cause conflicts. When opening a solution we should check whether it's already open in the current workspace.

I think this is no longer an issue. Or I don't know how to open multiple solutions. :P
Comment 3 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2013-11-24 13:45:52 UTC
Open a solution. Then File -> Open, select a sln, uncheck "Close current workspace".

This is fixed in master.
