This works fine with the latest Windows snapshot.

Subject: [Gretl-devel] multiple gretl instances once again
Despite what I said a couple of weeks ago, I think I've now found a reasonably
reliable way of showing sequence numbers in the gretl title bar when the user has two or
more instances (copies) of gretl running simultaneously.
Here's what's supposed to happen. The first gretl instance is always just titled
"gretl". The next concurrent instance is titled "gretl (2)", the next
again, "gretl (3)", and so on.
There's an ambiguity over what happens if, say, you have "gretl" and
"gretl (2)" running, then you close the first instance, then you start another.
The ambiguity is resolved in this way: the new instance will have a sequence number 1
higher than the highest-numbered running instance, so in the case just indicated it will
appear as "gretl (3)".
I believe this is now working on all OSes, but it would be nice to have that confirmed
(using CVS/snapshots, of course).
