The bug still seems to be there or is back again in NetBeans 8.0.2. At least I am suffering from an equal case. I am rearranging/tiling editor windows in my app using a dedicated actions that dock opened top components into predefined editor modes. I've attached a screenshot of a debug session where one can see the call stack from Mode.dockInto() up to the point where my TopComponent.componentClosed() is called. You can also see from the code ( that I've checked whether the window is already contained the target mode to make sure it is contained open in another mode, before dockInto() is called.
