Hi Dimitar,

Yes its inconsistent.

In addition to the cases you mention, when files are opened from the
previous session they are not moved to the top/added to the MRU list.  So
files that are open for a while fall off the list.  This is very annoying
when you accidently close them and then try to re-open them.

IMHO the MRU list should be a real Most Recently **USED** list, ie files go
to the top when they are focussed for any reason.
