Testing on Win, the widths are equal with 3.5.0, but not with 4.4.7. However, on Linux with 41max-50max, the widths are equal as well (albeit smaller) and there is no effect with checking Follow text.

Please try bibisecting with Win or Mac.

Weird, activating and deactivating the checkbox "Follow text flow" is making the "height" text box with spinner wider and shorter.

I can reproduce this issue with following steps:

1) Open new Writer document.
2) Insert 37 paragraph lines with default values (on Linux: Liberation Serif, 12pt). In another test document it's enough to have 34 lines.
3) Insert a rectangle shape.
4) Open Position and Size dialog.
   * You can choose Width and Height with values whatever you want.
   * Anchor to paragraph.
   * Position horizontal from left can be a value whatever you want.
   * With 37 lines above: Position vertical from top must be 0,2 cm to Margin or greater.
   * With 34 lines above: Position vertical from top must be 1,7 cm to Margin or greater.
5) Close the dialog with OK.
6) Reopen the dialog.
