Short description of error

When there's a separate 'Blender Preferences' window called from: Application --> Preferences
(will revert to just 'Blender' when opened from a saved file)
rendering will take over that window with: Display Mode --> New Window.
When a window is created from: Window --> New Window or a shift-click corner this doesn't happen.
