Nav Pain doesn't match file list?

    In Win Explorer the Nav Pane doesn't indicate what the other pane is
    viewing. For instance expand C:, click on a folder so the contents
    show in the right pane. Use the up arrow to highlight the folder above
    that in the Nav Pane. The right pane still shows the contents of the
    original folder. Collapse C: with the little arrow so now C: is
    highlighted. The right pane still shows the contents of the original
    folder. Very deceptive and I'm sure is going to bite me some time when
    I think I'm copying files from one folder but it's actually some
    other.

    Is this a but? Is there some rational to it and I just don't get it?
    Is there a way to change this behavior. It's not how XP (or 98, 95...)
    worked and is counter-intuitive. I hope there's a registry fix or
    something.

    Thanks,
    Tom
