Linking Two Tabs replaces target tab with original file

If I understand this feature, linking a tab to another should synchronize the two files so if you move one up or down, the second linked file will also move. This would be very useful for comparing two translations of the same text, one English and a second one French.

I thought this worked before, but it now replaces the second or first file, so that you get two copies of the same file that move together.
