Dired buffers and finding files...

Minor niggle here that's getting to me.

If I have a buffer visiting a file in a given directory - e.g. /tmp/foo.txt
or something - and then decide I want to bring up a dired buffer of that
directory, pressing `C-x C-f /tmp/ RET' flips me to the existing foo.txt
buffer, rather than starting dired. If I remove the trailing `/' then I get
the directory view. If there's no file from that directory open, it jumps
straight to it - this feels weird under the fingertips..

Any variables I should have customized or is this a bug/feature? (There's
not a single mention of `dired' in .*emacs* here.)

FWIW I'm running "GNU Emacs 21.2.1 (i386-debian-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d
 scroll bars) of 2002-03-22 on raven, modified by Debian".
