It's the hand mouse cursor when you hover over the selection rectangle, right? (which isn't in sync with the border)

My experience is different, I bibisected it to the 5.4 backport of the following commit using repo bibisect-linux-64-5.4. The commit has been backported to 5.3, too, but it's only in 5.3.8.

NEW per bibisect result.
Looking at it again: When the textboxes are selected, around their border the mouse pointer changes to a 4-direction drag handle. Clicking then makes it possible to drag the textboxes.
This is the same experience as with my Word 2013.
Clicking inside the textboxes puts the edit cursor inside their text, which makes sense.
The problem in Writer is that the borders and the selection rectangles don't match.

DOCX import: fix <w:spacing w:before="..."/> for more than 58cm
How I tested:
-click on the border of textbox "Colton Loewen" to get the drag handles
-grab the top-right corner and reduce the size by dragging.
Result before the fix: the selection handles would be way to the left of the document - half-way outside of the application.
Result after the fix: the selection handles remained around the smaller textbox as one would expect.
