"The first car got around the obstacle, the car behind it certainly should as well (I'd exclude if there were something to the right of the moving car that might prevent an emergency lane change, but there's not)."

Nail, meet head. Not only are you supposed to leave a gap big enough to stop in in the first place, but as you say, no other traffic around and the Tesla is supposed to be aware of vehicles around it, not just in front. Although apparently it relies only on cameras and proximity sensors for side and rear, radar only works at the front so potentially it could pull out into the path of a car moving significantly faster than you, but in this case, that seems to be the avoiding action the Tesla should have taken.
