duplicate a session without establishing a new session

 
Hi,all

I find that when using "duplicate" in Xshell, what it does is to, for instance, establish a new ssh connection with the server. However, what I really want the "duplicate" to do is to CLONE the session, which means, no new connection(session), but a new window to see the SAME session. Some other terminal emulators already have this function, which is very useful especially to enterprises users. They may have to use a RSA SecureID to login to the servers, and the login password is changing very soon(like every 1 minute), every time establishing a new session means entering a password manually, this is annoying.

So, have the Xshell team ever considered adding the new function I sayed above. I really like Xshell. Thanks :)
