Hi, Prasanta.
A few notes about the fix:
  - Can we get an NPE in adjustScrollPositionIfNecessary at
        2391 list.scrollRectToVisible(cellBounds); Not sure that 
scrollRectToVisible is ready for null.
  - I think the assignment below can be simplified
        cellBounds = startRect != null ? startRect : null;
  - In the getNextPageIndex() probably we can "return index" immediately 
instead of additional indentation?
