What you describe seems the normal TM behaviour, or maybe I don't 
understand well.
But I noticed a strange behaviour some times ago, as it is hard to 
explain in my poor english, I didn't wrote about it before. I'll try 

As I understand it:

-open file 1 => file opens to the left of the screen
-open file 2 => TM puts it down-right of file 1.
-open file 3 => TM moves file 2 back to the left, same height than file 
1 and puts file 3 down-right of file 2.

(This is nice a nice, btw! )

If you move file 2 to the right before opening file 3, file 3 still 
opens at the left of the screen, as file 4, etc.
No problem. But:
If you move file 1 to the right before opening file 2, file 2 opens 
down-right file 1, not at the left of the screen.
Then, if you opens file 3, TM sends file 2 to the left of the screen. 
Which is a bit... weird to say the least.

I hope someone will understand what I wrote ;)
