Lightroom CC: When flagging a photo & filter removes it from view, advance to the next photo not previous

This one isn't a huge problem, but it's still a little annoying.

Steps to reproduce:
1. In an album in Grid view, filter by "unflagged".
2. Select any photo in the middle of the album, and switch to Detail view.
3. Press the left arrow key on the keyboard to go to the previous photo.
4. Press the X key to reject the photo and remove it from the filter.

Expected: Selection advances to the next photo.
Actual: Selection moves back to the photo before the rejected photo.

The selection moves in the direction of the last arrow key press. So if you are advancing forward with the right arrow key and rejecting, the selection also advances as expected. But if you go back to a previous photo with the left arrow key, the selection also moves left after rejecting.

I don't know if this is intentional, but it feels more inconsistent than helpful. If I remove a photo, I expect the next photo to appear no matter what.

Thank you.  I tested on the same version. 

It looks like the direction is honored and sticky either way depending upon the last direction change. I am guessing this is as-designed behavior but I will confirm with the team. 

Confirmed with team that the behavior you are seeing is as-designed. If you would like to request a change in behavior, you can convert this into an Idea and others can vote for it.

I see. Yeah, I'd like to do that! (I think I can no longer edit the post though.)
