It behaves this way in the org file when you change folding views with
TAB.  From the agenda it's useful (at least for me) to be able to see
the first few lines of the drawer data for LOGBOOK entries.

When I mark a task WAITING I normally record the reason for WHY it is
waiting in the LOGBOOK as a note.  SPC in the agenda on the task
displays the extra detail and I like this current feature.
