focus does not follow a moving cell in google chrome

While moving a cell from top to bottom of a notebook the focus of the page does not follow the cell – it just moves out of sight.

This happens only in google chrome, not in firefox.
Chrome console shows several errors:

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'parent' of undefined
    at Object.handleEvent (main.js:159)

With a fresh profile there are no errors in the console but the behavior remains the same.
