A very good question and we agree with you.  We're planning to override
how this works in the widget we're using (what you're seeing is the
poorly considered default behavior of the GtkNotebook widget).

Yes, and you can also hide the tabs entirely in favor for an extra
popup with the files listed in the area where the source navigation
menus are located.  See the Hide Notebook Tabs item in the options
popup in top right of editor area.
