When I do that I get a total of 4 **new** tabs.

I get two new tabs and two weirdly truncated title bars, and Take Command hangs.

Not reproducible here. I cannot think of any way that could happen unless
you have an alias for START (or something in your TCSTART).

That only happened once; I can't reproduce it. Possibly I still had two extra tabs from my first experiment, which was "start /tab & start /tab".

Anyway, since then, it seems to work correctly.
