VS.NET solution explorer synchronisation

Does anybody know how to stop the VS.NET IDE from automatically selecting the file you have open in the solution explorer? It can be severely irritating.

Why?

Just curious.

Well, for instance, I have one large project for all my old ASP pages.  If I'm making a fix to one of those ASP pages, the Solution Explorer brings it up, expanding all it's parent folders along the way.  Since there are a TON of files in my OldASP project, his basically makes the Solution Explorer useless for selecting anything else until I collapse my OldASP project.

Not a huge, huge problem, but it can definitely be annoying.

I reported this a bug in Beta 1 of VS.net 2002.  I don't think they plan on changing this.
