New Window not retaining found set

I have a "new window" script step.  Per FMP documentation it is supposed to retain the found set of the original window, but it is not.

The FMP documentation says:

Description

A new window has the same layout, same table, same found set, and same current record as the original window.

Instead, the new window is opening, but is finding all records, thus eliminating my found set which I wish to work with in this new window.

Now the reason for this is that on the main file I have an "on open" script trigger which includes a "find all records" script step.

Is there a way to disable that "on open" script when a second iteration of a file is opened with the "new window" script step?
