A Windows 7 feature that drives me to distraction.

I may find this a bit hard to explain, I'm not sure if the issue concerning me is a design feature or a bug.

Here goes.

Let's suppose I open 4 files a, b, c, d.
All appear as buttons/icons on the taskbar until closed.
If I'm on file a and click file b the window shows file b, but
if I go from file b to desktop and then click file b on the taskbar
the previous or another open file comes up.
This particularly confusing if you have to files of the same name
but from different folders open.
Why cant the file you click on come up instead of the previous one.

Sorry to answer my own post before any body read it.
I turned off aero and the nonsense stopped.
Anyone else find aero a pain ?.
