Hmm, I'm running 4.1 git (but not the latest one, but a snapshot from maybe
one or two weeks ago). I haven't checked if this works properly in the very
latest 4.1 git yet.

Well, yes, I sort of get it. But it would be nice if they would stop messing
around with the editor part and just show/hide the toolbars and views

the debug view, no flickering).

I forgot to mention that an option for disabling the auto-switch would also be
really nice.
