Using SHIFT key to select the 'Backup Sets' in the Storage properties does not select correct backup sets.


When a backup set is selected in the Storage properties, and selecting another backup set by holding the SHIFT key after scrolling UP few pages, instead of selecting all the backup sets between the two backup sets that are selected, it selects/highlights all the backup sets which are above the second backup set selected.
