(Upgraded from 16.04 to 16.10) File manager (Caja) cannot scroll to bottom, cannot rename, no icon highlight

I recently upgraded to 16.10. Caja (1.16) have following issues after upgrade"

  1. Cannot scroll bottom. Scrolling down will stop at ~60%, neither scroll wheel nor manual scroll can scroll past 60% (see screenshot).
  2. Cannot rename file/folder. Right click rename, F2, Edit -> Rename don't work.
  3. Drag & drop will highlight the destination folder, but there is no highlight at the Side Pane (places).

Hi @austenmoses

The scrolling thing is being discussed here:

It looks like the ability to rename files (I use F2 also) is another symptom of the same bug.

Here's the workaround. Your picture shows the window width is just short of flipping to 4 icons wide. This is exactly what causes this bug. Make the window wider until it just switches to 4 icons wide and scrolling and renaming should magically start working.
