NetBeans can handle multiple build processes. But if one build finishes and I need to start another, but keep the old one for reference or to press "Re-run the goals" later, I can't - NetBeans always reuses the old window and replaces it's context (log, goals, test results, etc) with the new run.

I would like to be able to keep at least 1 old run, because typical scenario in bigger projects is that bugs/changes in one module are reproduced/tested in other module. So I need to repeatedly run 2 builds with certain non-default parameters. And setting them again and again is a pain.

Thanks for considering.
