I guess it should be doable (not sure about the difficulty, though), but
can you please give a typical case where you would need this?

Bug, but (unfortunately) I cannot reproduce it on my system. Normally,
Tw should recognize a corresponding pdf if it is already open and not
open a copy of it. Probably there's some problem with that mechanism
that you've came across now. So could you please describe in as much
detail as possible what you did and especially the directory layout you
use? In particular:
 * What is the full path/filename of your .tex file?
 * What is the full path/filename of your .pdf file?
 * Do you use multiple .tex files?
 * Do you use "%TeX root" to define a root file?
 * How do you open the pdf file (e.g., from the explorer, i.e.,
bypassing the normal startup / after starting Tw normally via File >
Open / after having opened other .tex and/or .pdf files / ...)
