Photoshop CC 2015.0.1: Layers dragged from one doc to another doc where the target is inside an artboard are placed in the very top of the list

So I was holding my fingers crossed all this time and hoped it'll get fixed with 2015.0.1 update. Nope. Still exists.

The problem in a nutshell: I need to copy a folder or a single layer from one doc to another. Into a specific place within the layer list. So I stack two document windows side by side, mark the place I'm interested in in the receiving doc by clicking on the folder/layer in the layer panel. I'm now dragging my stuff from the donor doc and hoping that it will end up in that very specific place within the layer panel of the receiving doc. But Photoshop just places it in the very top of the list. Every time. Same way it did with the duplicate layer which is now fixed. Same way it still does with the smart objects dragged from the Creative Cloud panel. Errgh.

Mandatory stuff:

OS X Yosemite, 2 extensions that never affected anything, PS v2015.0.1

Is your target within a layer group or art board? I'm not able to repro off hand.

why can't we see both layers palettes in 2-up view so we can drag and drop?

This should be solved by the CC 2015.1 update that was released today: https://blogs.adobe.com/photoshop/201...
