I don't think I explained myself well here.  What I mean to say is that 
if I start LaTeXiT and then open two windows, render a=b in the first 
window, then render g=h in the second window,  both windows now have 
g=h.  This is not what I expected, since the contents of the first 
window, a=b, is now overwritten with g=h.  My user intuition would 
expect that only the window I am using should be affected by any 
typing/latexing.  However, this is not a huge problem since the history 
is global to all windows, and I can just reload a=b in the first window 
from the history.  I agree, having a global history is a good thing.
