The suggested workaround works.  There are two wireshark applications running on my Mac now.  This may actually be preferred because I can switch applications with command-tab and then pick the window with command-backquote whereas if it was one application with multiple windows, it would be command-backquote to cycle through the all different IP traces as well as the other windows such as statistics, exports, etc.

Thank you very much… this is much appreciated
