I can repo this on two mac's both running

Version 24.0.1312.14 beta

I'm not talking about using the scrollbar. I'm talking about hitting space or the up/down arrow keys to scroll before clicking after control-tabbing into and before clicking with the mouse/trackpad in the window.

If you're in MTV I can come over to your desk and show you this.
