Blast, I was afraid of that. My logic would be just to open in the
most recently focused view that isn't the buffer list, unless there
aren't any others. If I'm working in some pane and I click a file, I'd
want it to open in that pane. Similar could be done with the file

Really stinks that you can't update a buffer that isn't active though.
That kills a lot of useful possibilities for informative/tool panes.
