Keyboard navigation with PgUp/PgDn doesn't move selection

Bug Description

Binary package hint: nautilus

When navigating folders containing many files, Page Up and Page Down keys behavior is inconsistent with arrow keys. Arrows move the selection to the next file, and if needed, scroll the viewport so it is visible. However, PgUp/PgDn simply scroll the viewport, not switching the selection. Therefore, if I press down arrow after several PgDn presses, meaning to advance the viewport one line further, it jumps back to where the original selected file was. This is inconsistent with, for example, text editors and browsers.
