Split editor tabs issues

I've got some usability issues with IDEA, and I'd like to check whether I'm doing something wrong.

I usually adopt a "split view" approach with a vertical split. In this mode, each half seems to act "independently": the list of open files - which can be cycled via ctrl+tab - is separate between the left and right tab

This is really annoying, because many times I'd like to have a single "open files" list concept, and be able to quickly switch the file I view on either side. While the "Move to opposite group" is handy, I'd really like to share the open files list.

Is there any way to achieve such "shared open file list" funcionality?

In the current IntelliJ IDEA 11.1 EAP, the built-in Ctrl-Tab switcher works in exactly the way you desire.
