The behaviour you describe is normal. I think you are supposed to use
`C-x o' to get to your sourcefile. 

There is a patch (written by me)  on the mailinglist which changes this
behaviour so that selecting the source file will position the cursor in
the shown window. It does so by using pop-to-buffer unconditionally
instead of using switch-to-buffer when the buffer is not currently

But I'm afraid, this patch will probably not apply cleanly anymore,
after all the contrib restructuring. I'm still waiting for the dust to
settle before upgrading and have in the meantime switched to Attila
Lendvais darcs fork, so I can't say for sure.
