I'm not convinced it is a byproduct, it's a key point-- because it
doesn't really do what you expect.  If I'm looking at the contents of a
folder, click on its background and select "New Window", I expect
another view of the same folder (just like I get another view of the
same file in GIMP or the same page in Galeon if I select New Window),
not some other completely unrelated directory.
