Extra views pop up when selecting multiple pieces

I’ve been noticing across multiple updates of Vassal the following bug:

When I select 2 or more counters in a stack for movement/etc, by pressing the Shift key and holding down the Left mouse button, Vassal has the unwanted effect of creating a new View centered on the stack, sometimes automatically magnifying to the maximum as well. This only happens the first time. Subsequent selection of multiple stack counters behaves as expected.
After awhile, I end up with a plethora of random Views that I end up deleting one by one from time to time to reduce the View ‘clutter.’

Thanks for your time.
