LightRoom CC create folder and move selected images behaviour changed

When have a large shot, I'll usually import all the images into one, date based directory. Then I go through the shoot and separate it into distinct parts. I do this by selecting a number of images (often sequential but not necessarily so) and then right click in the folder panel and create new folder - with the 'Include selected folders' option clicked. The top level directory remains selected so I can go through the whole shoot.

In LR5, the folder was created, the images are moved and the moved images all remain selected. This way you can tell the last image that you moved (if it's sequential).

In LR CC, the folder was created, the are images moved BUT​ only the first image of the selection remains selected. You can't tell which images you've moved.

This is a huge nuisance, and is already slowing down my workflow as I try to remember the last image in a sequence that I've moved.

The question is - is this a bug (yes!!) - or is it by design as someone previously has decided that this is not a good idea and Adobe have removed this method of working from Lightroom CC?
