U4-3400 - Changing sections doesn't reload last selected item in that section

Umbraco 7RC

Unlike v6, when I change sections in the back office, the last-selected page is not loaded automatically. Though the tree is (sometimes) expanded I still have to select the item to load it. Worse, I can be shown the tree for one section while the 'dashboard' area is from the previous section. Very confusing.

(this may be limited to when the screen is wide enough for the trees to be pinned open)

  1. Open a Content page for editing (preferably not the home page so the issue is easier to see)
  2. Open a template for editing in the 'Settings' Section.
  3. Return to the Content section... the Content tree expands properly (sometimes) but the 'Edit template' editor is still loaded in the right-hand panel.

When changing sections, the last-loaded page should be re-loaded if possible, minimizing steps for users (especially site builders who go back and forth between Content, Settings, and Developer sections constantly).
