    unity launcher question

    I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 with Unity with 4 workspaces. Let's say I have an application, for example xterm open on the upper left workspace, however at that moment I'm in the lower left workspace. If I click on the xterm icon on the launcher, instead of opening another xterm in the workspace where I currently am, I get switched to the upper left workspace to the xterm which is already open. How can I change that behaviour, so that when clicking on an application icon on the launcher another window of the same application opens, as opposed to being redirected to an already open instance of that application in another workspace? Thanks.
