Moving the Photoshop CC 2015 "navigator window" viewbox over large images makes the viewbox scroll on its own

STR:

- Load a wide image (I ran into this with ~13kx1280px and 15kx1280 px files).
- In my testing, zoom out such that the image is at, or near, a zoom level that makes the image vertically fill the PS window (this ensures a minimal size viewport box that can only be dragged left/right).
- Try to drag the viewport box left and right across the preview.
- At seemingly random times, the viewport box will decide to scroll "however it feels like scrolling" rather than following the user's cursor.

Recorded example of PS exhibiting this behaviour: http://i.imgur.com/kRGm90j.gif (cursor recorded alongwith, so that it's clear how the user is interacting with the UI element)

In this particular recording, the viewport decided to go from following the cursor to a scroll speed of a few pixels per second in random directions - I've also seen instances of this bug where it instead decides to start scrolling much faster that it's being dragged.

Note: I am not looking for workarounds or user discussions. This is purely a bug report (with the notion of having to file that on a community forum striking me as bizarre, so if there's also an actual issue tracker where I can file bugs like these in the future). I've seen bug reports turn into community debates in countless threads so far, so: if you are not a Photoshop team member, *please* don't comment unless you've also run into this problem and have additional STR or STR refinements that will aid in tracking this bug.
