These two are related in terms of the general need for more flexibility in
defining window layout and contents.  The next beta release should support
a way to view multiple files within one or a few windows rather than
always opening a new window for each file.  Hopefully we can also do
something about the source browser; side-by-side arrangement would be a
good option.

Note that in the interim you can zoom out to the seperate source window by
right-clicking on the class/module view area.  That's useful in some

In the longer term we'ld like to make all of this entirely configurable,
including ability to change contents of source browser and debugger
windows (which could also embed a source view).  But this kind of full
flexibility isn't planned until some time after version 1.1.

Yes, looks like variable 'refer' is being shown as if it's at the top
level and not in class a.  I've added this to the bug list.

Thanks for your suggestions and feedback!
