[Qt-creator] how are git blame and git diff choosing the editor to display in

Before I get a bad case of neck muscles soreness, I guess it's better to ask 

I have 2 displays (yay!) and I use to open a secondary QtCreator 
editor(separate window) in the second display. If I hit Alt+G, Alt+B in one 
editor, the git-blame's output is sent to the other window/frame (the one 
which doesn't have the focus). Now, if in the blame I click one of the 
revision numbers, the corresponding git-diff appears in the original (first) 
window. This, IMHO, breaks the rule of least surprise. E.g. Ctrl+K does the 
good thing (opens a new editor on-top/instead-of the one that currently has 
the focus).

I guess I can get the logic of not obscuring the current editing with the 
results of commands that open new editors, but could be this rendered 
configurable somehow (e.g. be able to choose not to apply it to git 
navigations originated in a git result buffer?).
