It's like it always remembers where the last window was open and always opens any new windows in the same location. Doesn't seem like XP or Vista were like that. They could remember separate locations.
I found that annoying at first as well. I've now gotten used to hitting [windows-key]-[right arrow] on the initial window and then [windows-key]-[left arrow] after opening the second window. Makes the window 1/2 the size of the screen and moves it to the side of the screen corresponding to the arrow.
