ODT file to test selection problem

When in header or footer, text begins or ends outside text boundaries area, it is impossible to select text with mouse if i begin the selection with text outside. 

For exemple with the example attached : in header, if i begin selecting text inside "Loren" with mouse, selection don't work. In page main text area, no problem. 

If i moove cursor with keyboard and use shift+arrow to select, no problem.

Tip : use Display/text boundaries to help selection. No matter if text boundaries are shown or not.
