I have a window placed center left, and I crafted two chests starting from the top left most corner and the second directly beneath it. The light filtering in through the window is what is seemingly preventing me from getting to the chest, because during the night when I had built it I had no problem getting to it.
Steps to Reproduce
Place a chest underneath a light source coming in from the left side, and see if hovering produces no interaction between cursor and chest.
