I feel this is a bug, but there may be a legitimate reason for the behaviour:
I have a database open, navigate/list/widescreen configuration. A group is open, the list pane displays the contents of that group. In search, I enter a search term; documents fulfilling that term are displayed in the list view. I now change to a different group or to the inbox, leaving the search term in place in the search panel. If I now remove the search term from the search panel by clicking the at the right hand side of the search panel, then DT jumps back to the group which was active when the search term was first entered.
For me that is unexpected behaviour and has never been where I wanted to go (what is far more common is that I search, find what I want, change to another group to do something else, remember that I still have an active search term, clear it, find myself back in the previous group, have to re-select the group I actually wanted to go to…). Is it a bug?
