Yes, but this is because you rely on the tabbar to navigate your open files. 
Remove the tabbar and use history/quickopen/codenavigation instead and you 
will find what you are looking for and will not even know how many files are 
open.  :)

Hmm.. ok, you said "overview". I guess if you want to have control over what 
files you can _see_ there is no substitute to actually closing the other 
files. But I still can not see any reasonable algorithm that comes even close 
to correctly guessing which files that might be - which leaves manual user 
action. Very doable via the Document List. (KDev3 does it..)
