Because in addition to creating the object the IDE also selects it, and
the selectionChanged message triggers the Inspector update just as it
does when moving from a card that had been selected.
I wouldn't call the current behavior a bug; after all, for all long as
it's been around it seems to have tripped up exactly one person. :)
But perhaps a feature request might be useful, so that the IDE would
select any newly-created card.
There might be side-effects for card selection I'm not anticipating, and
this request wouldn't affect things when navigating between existing
cards. But if you feel strongly about not having to look at the
Inspector's title bar when something seems inexplicable it may at least
provide on specific workflow case where that may not be needed.
