perhaps I'm doing something completely wrong, but if I open a new space in Lion, how can I open a new window in Safari or Terminal, IF I already have a prior window open in a different space, without having spaces automatically shift to the other screen? To be precise, suppose I open a Safari window in space #1, and then shift to space #2. How do I open a new Safari window, without having Lion automatically move the screen back to space #1?

Try turning off MC's automatic switching. Then you can TAB-select Safari and use CMND-N to make a new window.

Unfortunately, using CMD-Arrow switches your application to Finder, so you still have to go back and select the application you were on to pull up a new window.

So while the option is there, the implementation is only 80% thought out.

Alt-Click on the icon in the dock and select "new finder window" or "new window", works great. Opens in your current space.
