LightRoom 6 unselects recently moved photos

When I first load photos into LR, I load them into a directory based on the the shoot/event, for example 150521_bluesquake, I then sort them out into subdirectories by category 150521_dance, 150522_late_night, 150522_dance etc. by selecting the photos, then creating a subdirectory. As long as I have "show photos in subdirectory" selected, it's all very clean and simple and I can see where I left off.
Or I could until LR6, which will then unselect everything except the first photo, move me back in the grid to where that photo was and force me to find the end of the photos that I had just selected and moved, greatly increasing the amount of work that I need to do.

I can confirm this behavior in LR CC 2015.1. In LR5.7.1 the image files all remain selected when moved to a new folder.
