Lightroom scrolling BUG win 10

On windows 10 with lightroom 2015.10.1 (latest, at least it shows no updates) scrolling does not seem to work in the library module with many images.

If I am in a folder with only a few images scrolling using two fingers on the trackpad works fine.

However, the more images there are in the current folder the scrolling amount steadily decreases such that for a folder with ~20000 images (all library) I have to scroll an insane number of times on the trackpad for the view to move a single pixel.

Scrolling with the scroll bar works fine in all cases.

I am not sure if this will help, but I was having a similar problem that seemed tied to the size of the Camera Raw Cache Settings. I could use the scroll bar and move where ever I wanted as you are not building a preview for each of the images going by as you do when scrolling up or down. 
I found a few posts under google stating that the setting had to be large, in the area of 70 gig. I have the room on my drives so I upped my cache to this and the problem was solved. Just make sure you give the program some time to rebuild the cache once you make the change.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the tip, unfortunately I do note have that amount of spare space on my SSD so can't easily test that, increasing just a few gigabytes did not make any noticible difference.

Regardlesss, since it works smoothly to scroll with the scollbar this must be bug in Lightroom, why should it need bigger cache for scrolling with trackpad vs scrollbar?
