Bug Description

When using multiple tabs to manage directories, the scrolling boundaries don't account for the tab space vertically making it possible to highlight, select, copy, etc. directories and files which are not visible. This is particularly annoying when using the context search and after typing the first few characters of a filename, it appears to have not found the file, only to find it's selected, just not visible due to being scrolled off the screen.

Tested in 3.14.2 on Ubuntu 15.10.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. The issue you are reporting is an upstream one and it would be nice if somebody having it could send the bug to the developers of the software by following the instructions at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Upstream/GNOME. If you have done so, please tell us the number of the upstream bug (or the link), so we can add a bugwatch that will inform us about its status. Thanks in advance.

Sebastian,

I can't do this now, but will report it upstream and respond.

Thank you!
Rich

Is that still an issue in the current version? Could you make a screenshot explaining the problem?
