Preview behavior issue with dual monitors

I have a bug that only appears to happen with dual monitors. If I have a list of files and spacebar Preview of the first and arrow down through them, it works as expected, like in Finder. This behavior even works normally if Pathfinder is on monitor 1 and the preview window is monitor 2. But if I open one of those files (say an AVI file in VLC player w/ the CMD+DOWN-ARROW keyboard command) into monitor 2 (when Pathfinder is on monitor 1) and then CMD-TAB back to Pathfinder, the preview window disappears goes blank and if I arrow down it shows files from my desktop. I must click w/ my mouse back on Pathfinder for it to get back on track. Finder works normally and doesn't do this. If I leave VLC in the same monitor as Pathfinder, the issue doesn't happen.

    There are some issues, unfortunately, with dual monitors when using Path Finder. 

    We've already submitted it to our developers, sorry for the inconvenience. 

    Make sure to let us know should any further questions arise. 

    Best Regards,
