I also ran into this last year & requested some method of dealing correctly with this situation.
I opened a feature request on UserEcho: Add --new-instance and --noremembered files
. But it hasn't gotten any response or user traction. Apparently, very few other users care about it, as the feature has only gotten 7 cumulative votes in the last 10 months.
Take a look, vote, and tell others about it as well. Maybe, it will start to generate more interest and they'll add the capability in the next version.
