This is not a bug. This is the default setting upstream and opening up new
folders in the spatial view is by design. If you do not like it as a matter of
personal preference there is easy enough setting to use the browser view. 

If you want to discuss the rationale behind upstream defaults in this case you
can post to gnome-usability list. However this is a discussion that has been
hashed out there multiple times already.
