Photoshop CC 2015: Auto-Select using the Move Tool not functioning properly when selecting while the canvas is off-screen or when over-selecting and reducing.

Updated to Photoshop CC 2015. Having "Auto-Select: Layer" turned on, and using the Move Tool, when I drag over an are to auto-select multiple layers, it works fine to select those layers in that area. However, if I drag across the full canvas and then reduce my selection size, it still keeps those other layers selected, even when they're not in the "Selected" area.

Any chance this fix will come in the next update?
It is really annoying and cripples the workflow, since now I have to keep locking more layers and previously needed.

It's too sad that 5 month after the official response the issue is still unavailable. I hope you will resolve this problem.

Looks like Photoshop 2015.1.1 Update May have fixed this.
