That is a very good point. I will add a --sdi flag then.

what happens when a user does -u with this patch? nothing at all.

there is an if statement that states something like this:
if MDI enabled or -U option then open in the current instance.

I would like someone to test it as well, but I will make modifications
and add it to the bug tracker
