This should work.  I do it briefly all the time when developing Wing 
itself and occasionally for longer stretches when working on an 
independent project.

I suspect this is problem in searching and not a problem with the two 
instances.  Could you submit a bug report from within the IDE and 
include the error-log?  Note that the results text area disappears when 
the search is in interactive search mode.

Yes, the default preferences are global.  If you need to override some 
preferences in one instance or the other, you can use the '--prefs-file' 
command line option to specify another file whose values will be layered 
on top of the default preferences.

Don't hesitate to ask questions if you have other problems,
