Changing file name = new tab?

When I do something like changing a file’s name, the cursor will suddenly shoot up to the + key in order to create a new tab. I’ll have to go back to the file name and wiggle the cursor just a bit as I’m attempting to click twice in order to keep it from doing that. I’m also using a cursor default-position locator called Steer Mouse, which might be causing this issue. But my issue only happens when I’m in Total Finder. Anybody have a clue as to how to fix this issue?

No idea…
