New Window loads the current layout instead of an empty window, Go to Related Record in new window doesn't work!

Windows 7 64 bit Professional

Description of the issue

If I open a new window from Layout A, the new window loads Layout A and fires all appropriate scripts for loading a record, layout enter etc., which gets me stuck in a loop of never ending windows opening.  I want to open a new window and specify the layout to go to without it defaulting to Layout A.  If I try using the Go to Related Record [From table: "TableB"; Using layout" "LayoutB"(TableB); New Window] and specify the dimensions and location of the window, nothing happens if there is no related record.  I need the window to open and a script to run whether there is a related record there or not.  Anyone have any ideas as to how to get around this "aggressive default"?
