ui.list setSelectedItems problem

i think there is a problem with the setSelectedItems function.

the following code, should select first 3 items from "the second list" when user selects an option from "the first list". It does, but it also selects the first item from the first list. if i change [0,1,2] with [1,2,3] this time it selects the second item from the first list.

How to fix this?

Yes, this is a bug. The selection controller uses a static array between 'before' and 'after' states to process the selection. The possible workaround is to launch second list update with setTimeout call -

list1.onSelectedItemsChanged = function(array){
    this.setTimeout(function(){
      list2.setSelectedItems([0,1,2]);    
    });
  }
