Normally with ctrl-tab, ctrl-shift-tab, ctrl-f6 ctrl-shift-f6 (at least
on windows)

What version do you have? on 0.8.0b on Windows, it jumps to the tab,
if the file is already open.

Now the interesting part of your post begins for me. :)

In DrPython you have a plugin Sessions or SessionsLight for that.
on the sf project page and the SessionsLight on:
It saves all open file plus last editing position.

In DrPython, there is also a Code Completions plugin.
It is not perfect, but still useful.

I don't want to persuade to use this or that,
but a closer look to the plugins will reveal
the "hidden" features of DrPython, and plugins
prevent DrPython to become to bloated.
