I'd say it's a limitation, but something we can probably improve on in 3.x
as we're planning to create a separate login session that is used during
authentication. This would be backed by a cookie that would make sure the
current flow would be shared cross multiple tabs. Could you create a JIRA
enhancement request for this please?
