I want a *new* project (or just the default one). I don't want to have 
to specify which project when I open wing as the paths are often tedious 
to type and it is usually the second entry in the "Recent Projects" list.

I don't want to globally disable this. It is often the behavior I want, 
just not when opening a second instance.
