I presume you can duplicate the problem?

There also is the problem of Kate not correctly grabbing focus (bug report 692).

To me Kate has been broken since moving away from a multiple document interface (MDI) to a single document interface (SDI). I don't know how much work is needed to revert to the older code or whether there is sufficient interest among users to motivate us to investigate.

The MDI to SDI change occurred after 3.4.3. That means 3.5.0 introduced the confounded Kate sessions and the SDI.

I have all of the 3.4.3 code. Reverting back also would mean restoring the simpler and more effective Projects rather than sessions.

Is anybody interested?
