Bug Description

The implemented selection behavior has 2 issues (which seem to be related):

1. When the selection reaches the last item in a folder it begins to go further to the second selected item if "Shift + →" is pressed several times more. It should stop at the last item.

2. Undoing last item selection using "Shift + ←":

        1. Select several items ending at the last item of a folder using "Shift + →".
        2. Press "Shift + →" one more time(the selection doesn't change but this step is needed).
        3. Press "Shift + ←" to undo the selection of the last item.

An item before the first item in our selection adds to our selection. The behavior should have been undoing of the last item's selection.

The issue is still present for the opposite direction(if you choose some files ending in first item.)

Confirmed for Icon View - List View seems OK. Icon View has some other unexpected behaviours which Shift-Arrow selection/deselecion as well.
