Splunk 6 web interface - not possible to open events in new window from statistics pane

In earlier versions of Splunk, it was possible to CTRL-click on statistics results, and have a search with the appropriate field opened in a new browser window.

In Splunk 6, the new search is always opened in the same window, and I have to rely on the browser back button to go back to the statistics view. That's a major hassle when trying to quickly go through event details from statistics - especially as going back will always end up on the first page of the statistics, not the one you were coming from.

Simple example: I have a search in the line of host=server | top limit=100 id.
When I click on one of the results in the id row of the statistics page, Splunk 6 will start a new search with host=server id=result in the same browser window, losing the statistics overview.

Is there any way to get the old behaviour back?

Unfortunately the ability to use special command keys to open a stats chart drilldown search in a new window is not supported in Splunk Enterprise 6.0. Your request has been noted by the engineering team and they are considering the possibility of restoring this functionality in a future release.
