I was recently traversing through water, and I noticed that whenever I pressed forward I would move upward more than I would move forward. This made it extremely difficult to move forward underwater. I had to constantly stop and descend back to the height I needed. I did not know why this was occurring for a moment, then I remembered the new Auto Jump option. I disabled the Auto Jump option as a test, and I was able to move through the water in as expected again. If a video would help my explanation I could attempt to include a low quality one (10 MB limit)
Step 1. Enable Auto Jump
Step 2. Go into a large body of water.
Step 3. Move forward without holding the button used to swim up.
Result: Automatic Underwater Ascension against the player's will.
