what do you mean by "search my way again"?
The idea is that everything is opened as it was before you left "Code" - or
if you have the same workingset in Code and Debug (default behavior) then
the files should just stay open.

We could add a UI configuration option to disable that automatic
switch - though I think then the whole area concept is senseless and should
be completely disabled.
What do others think about that?
