XPages doesnt support 'multitasking' for same user?

 XPages doesnt support 'multitasking' for same user? I know this sounds strange ... but I found 'strange' behaviour to me.  I have a xPages app where one action is rather long running. Its doing some extensive search on big database(using java API in managed bean). User must simply wait in browser. But I found the strange behaviour here. I simply opened an addiotinal tab in browser and tried to open some other part of the same xpages application. No way, just waiting.  Seemed quite strange to me. I tried this scenario several times wiht the same result. After the long running page loaded, the other tabs loaded as well. How to understand this? Does it mean that Domino using xpages can't serve me other pages when the one is long running(still loading) ??

Hello David,
didn't experienced such problems in the past. Can you be sure that it is related to multi-user handling? Could the problem be the performance on the server? You said you use a quite long and performance-intensive request, may the server be busy and isn't able to handle the request while your search is running?
May be an asynchronous request is the solution here.

It was rumoured that this would be fixed in 8.5.3, but I'm not sure if it has been.
Read more about the reason for the behaviour towards the middle of this blogpost (The limitations):

Fixed in 8.5.3...
"Synchronization no longer happens on the session itself, but on the page instance. In short, it can now execute 2 different page instances at the same time, while it locks for postback calls to the same page instance and execute them sequentially."

 To be honest, server is running Domino 8.5.2FP2 not 8.5.3 ...

 Just checked on my local 8.5.3 server, seems to be resolved in this version ...
