Use case or problem
See the original bug report here:
Navigating back and forth is not pane specific.
Apparently, there was a design decision to make navigation apply to all pane history. I think there is a strong case where navigation that is based on the history of the focused pane is much more usable and effective. Either way, please provide an option so that each individual can decide how navigation should behave.
Ideally, if keyboard shortcuts are more effective so that pane focus and maneuverability can be done more predictably and intuitively from the keyboard, then providing the option to make navigation pane specific would be a very powerful supplement in increasing user experience/productivity.
