OK I see where your coming from, though I would not say it's "broken",
it is a change of behavior from what went before. I think FC3 had that
behavior also and I expect RHEL5 will probably also have it. It was a
design decision to reflect what new desktop users coming from
Windows/Mac would expect.
It would be nice if it could be configured to act differently, there may
be a way to configure it to do what you expect.
