That should definitely not happen.  `find-file' should at most change
the buffer of one window.  And if the file is already shown in some
window, then it should just select that.

But anyway, there have been other problematic cases with the use of
`find-file' so the current version of AUCTeX (e.g., the git version or
version 11.88.4 which you can install from ELPA) doesn't use it with
`TeX-source-correlate-sync-source' anymore.

I just tested with multiple tex documents, and that the current version
seems to behave as you would expect.

I don't think that's a good idea.  That would do nothing when you work
on a multi-file document and the current buffer has another part of the
document open.

Anyway, please upgrade your AUCTeX version and report back if that works
for you.
