You can choose to open a new window or to not do anything or it can prompt you to open an existing document. If it is going to be "fixed", perhaps it is best to add a preference to this effect.

I agree.
TextMate and TextWrangler don't open a new window.
Neither does texShop.
You do Command+N for a new file or go to the menu and Open Recent.

I wouldn't appreciate such behaviour very much.
