I now discovered that the previous document was not discarded, but remains inaccessible until you close the new window you just opened.
This is on Windows 10.

1) Open Document.sla
2) File > New
3) Windows > Path/to/your/Document.sla
3) Reduce new document window (icon is located below scribus reduce/minimize close buttons)
And now you can access first document window. Tested on Windows 10.
