The 'Show Path To GC Root' action in HeapWalker | References view doesn't automatically scroll to selection.
Fixed by http://hg.netbeans.org/profiler-main/rev/49b52d366feb.
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *201203030400* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)
