Quick things to try

Reupload: app/code/core/Mage/Admin and app/code/core/Mage/Adminhtml from a fresh working Magento version (Default).

and REM out :

var tabIndex = 1000;
function categoryProductRowInit(grid, row){
//var checkbox = $(row).getElementsByClassName('checkbox')[0];
var position = $(row).getElementsByClassName('input-text')[0];//
if(checkbox && position){
checkbox.positionElement = position;
position.checkboxElement = checkbox;
position.disabled = !checkbox.checked;
position.tabIndex = tabIndex++;
Event.observe(position,'keyup',positionChange);
}
}

and

<?php echo $_gridJsObject ?>.initRowCallback = categoryProductRowInit;

<?php echo $_gridJsObject ?>.rows.each(function(row){categoryProductRowInit(<?php echo $_gridJsObject ?>, row)});
