more command strange behaviour

i have noticed some strange behaviour with the more command

sometimes, when i use the more command to append the content of file2 to file1, the content of file1 in file2 is preceded by this:

{content file1}
{content file2}

this does not happen always

what would be the reason for this???

can you tell us how you invoke the command? won't 'cat file1 file2 | more' do the trick?

i know that using "cat" is the solution to the problem
it just strikes me that "more" is behaving so strangely and that i wasnt able to find that documented anywhere and whats the regularity behind that
