How do I make Eclipse Open Resource in the current editor window?

I like to have multiple editor windows in eclipse and reuse Open Resource (Ctrl-Shift-R).

Unfortunately, I always expect (and want ) a resource to open in the current editor window (with focus). However, if I currently have this resource open (as a tab) in another editor, that tab will populate that editor rather than open in the current editor.

This is incredibly frustrating behavior as the file in the editor I replace is often the file I want to use when I open a new one. How do I stop it and make Eclipse behave cool?
