    I had selected the "System Preferences" icon at the bottom right of the "Notification" panel from the menubar and hung for a couple seconds so I clicked it again and then I had three separate System Preferences panels open in the dock and windows. Didn't think you could open three instances of the same app :D

    You can via Terminal, but this looks like a bug. Did you report it to Apple already?

    This kinda reminds me of how you could spam Windows Explorer windows in Windows Vista and XP by holding the Start key + E. It was such fun annoying my Windows-using friends with it.

    If this bug makes it through to Mountain Lion's release, I could see this becoming a new way to seriously annoy Mac users. :p
