I have been using Evolution for MANY years, and I remember a time way

This was many years ago.  I don't know what happened but for many years
since, when I do this, it jumps to another message!  

This has been driving me so crazy, I need to be able to scroll inside
long messages with the keyboard!  

Does anybody have a solution to this, or know why this behavior has
changed so many years ago and was never fixed?

I tried to do it in 2.31.90 and it works as expected, Page Up/Down
scrolls the message preview, if it is focused. I cannot find a bug
number for it or a commit, but I recall seeing something like this.

Perhaps Rick is observing the behaviour that is driving me crazy ;-) If
you set focus on the message pane and then delete the message or move to
next message, the focus shifts from the message pane to the message
list. When you hit page down/up then, of course the undesirable happens.
I filed a comment against a bug:

but didn't file a new bug (should I have done?), anyway there has been
no further comment there from the devs.
