Maybe, but the behaviour is inconsistent as the source window comes
forward going in the other direction. I find it confusing because I
can't (ever) see the preview window so I keep thinking it hasn't worked
and retrying the switch. But then I have a 12" screen...

Anyway, as bugs go, this is a pretty minor one - at least for me.
