first screencast of the issue (list jumps back)

Description of problem:

The first attached screencast shows how scrolling with the down-arrow-button on the bottom of the list doesn't work. Whenever I scroll with it under the currently seen area and leave the arrow button, list jumps back to the original position.

The second screencast shows how using scroll-wheel doesn't work either. The list just doesn't scroll.

The only way how to get to the bottom of the list is with keyboard.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.open extremely long scroll-list (longer than what fits on the screen)
2.try to scroll in it with scroll-wheel or via down-arrow button
Actual results:
see above

Expected results:
both methods should allow me to select items in the list without retreating to keyboard

Works fine in brief testing here, with current GTK+ 3 and long menus.

Seems like fixed in gtk2-2.24.22-5.el7.x86_64
