Description Telesto 2017-02-16 15:18:11 UTC
Writer jumps back to start of the table when trying to select the next table row if first row contains large embedded table.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open attached file
2.Configure the zoom level in such way that "INTO THIS CORNER" isn't visible at the top of the document. 
3.Select the first table row of the orange table with the mouse by dragging from "START HERE SELECTION" towards "INTO THIS CORNER" until the first row is selected (the experienced selection issues are already reported: bug 106043 and bug 105343)
4. Scroll down with the mouse scroll wheel with the left mouse button pressed and mouse pointer somewhere above purple table (trying to select the next table row of the orange table). 

Actual Results:  
Writer keeps jumping back to the beginning of the orange table

Expected Results:
It should be no problem to select the second table row of the orange table

Reproducible: Always

First I was having trouble: it only selected the *first column*. Then I managed to continue selecting the whole thing after the first column was selected. But yes, it is behaving strangely.

Somewhat reproduced:

Step 3: when I follow the steps, the view jumps at once to the bottom of the page, only selecting the first column. If I want to select the first row only, I can't rely on the autoscroll, I need to use the scroll wheel to see the bottom of the first row, then move the mouse to the edge. When the row is selected, view jumps to top.
Step 4:

> Step 4:
This works fine. I need to move the pointer though, for the row to actually select.
