Terminal with similar keybindings to kwrite / kate / gedit / html text fields?

tmux - "tmux new-window \; split-window -h" does not work as expected anymore.

Tags patch, tmux

Start tmux with:
bash $ tmux
Which will start a session with one window and a shell started. In that shell type:
bash $ tmux new-window \; split-window
Up to 1.9a this would create a new window and split that new window.
In 2.0 and above it creates a new window, but then splits the first window.

The first patch "current-session-02.patch.txt" restores previous 1.9a behavior. But in order to be complete, tmux should also keep track of the...
