The document list offers a context menu option "Close." When using the close context menu option to close a document other than the currently displayed document, kate changes the displayed document after closing the other file, instead of leaving the currently displayed document alone.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open several files
2. In the file list, right-click close one of the other (not currently active/displayed) documents
kate switches to a different document
kate does not switch to a different document (continues to show the same document as before closing the other document)

If documents are closed, but they had no top most view, keep the view. Only if the active view vanished, replace it by the first document.
