It's indeed not a bug, it's a feature.

Herbert, are you implying that you'd also like a switch for this?

If some people are opposed to this behavior, one could easily add a  
customization variable.  This could also affect "switch-to-buffer"  
behavior (e.g., Window menu).  For "switch-to-buffer", we already have  
a special "switch-to-buffer-here".
