After playing with this awhile, I don't think there's a bug. We currently store the sidebar visible/hidden and collapse/expanded states separately for Browser and Composer windows, and I think that's the behavior most users will want. Many will probably want it open in the Browser, but closed in Composer, for example. Thus the state of the sidebar when "File | Edit page" is used from the Browser should not influence the state when that page is opened in Composer.
If many will want the state closed in Composer, should I file a separate bug on this issue? Because currently sidebar show up in open state when you get into the editor. verified in 12/6 build.
There may be some problems with the "persistance" mechanism for storing the states, as I described above. You should be able to hide/show via the view menu (that seems to be working OK.) I haven't played much with the collapse/ expand (by clicking on the border), so test that and file a bug if necessary.
