Circuit Breaker

I have a circuit breaker that snaps off the one above it when pushed to the "on" position. Since everything electrical in the house works, even with this breaker "off" it is not a big problem, but it just bugs me. The breaker above it controls at least one circuit with a set of 3 on off switches for a stairway hall light. (two swithches upstairs, one switch downstairs.) Anyone have any ideas on how to find this short quickly?

It sounds like these two circuits are connected together somewhere accidentally. They form a complete loop starting and ending at the panel. If the circuit is not overloaded you might just remove the wire from the second breaker and cap it off with a note to explain why. If you find that you need the second circuit then you'll have to track down the connection.
