The problem with Nested Dock Sites

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

Environment: Windows XP (32-bit)
Using NestedDockSites sample case I can observe that Outer DockSite is tracking DockingWindows which belongs to Inner DockSites (e.g. ActiveWindow and LastActiveToolWindow properties).

There are two problems I can see with that:

1. When I clicked (selected) "Inner DockSite 1-1" tab, I'd expect to have outerDockSite.ActiveWindow == "Document1" and innerDockSite1.ActiveWindow == "Inner DockSite 1-1", but I have outerDockSite.ActiveWindow == "Inner DockSite 1-1" as well as innerDockSite1.ActiveWindow. It seems at least confused.

2. After all documents are closed the inner document window cannot be garbage collected since Outer DockSite has a reference to one of the tool window of Inner DockSite.
