  nautilus creates new files/folders in wrong tab

Status in nautilus package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Ubuntu 12.10

  Steps to reproduce:
  1) Launch Nautilus
  2) Select two folders, open both in new tab (Right-click > Open in 2 new tabs)
  3) Go to the first new tab
  4) Try to create a new file (Right-click > New document > Empty document)

  What is expected:
  -File is created in the first new tab, opened in step 3

  What actually happens:
  -File is created in second new tab

  Further observations:
  -Instead of a new file, one can in step 4 also try to create a folder, to the same effect
  -Sometimes nautilus gets 'stuck' in the first opened tab, so doing step 4 in the second tab, will make files appear in the first instead
  -Haven't tested a later version of Nautilus yet, will do so when I get the time
