I confirm it with

Version: (x64) / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: 15a9bee9ef26ce13ed1e26319306a88b6d886158

The following is happening
In step 3 you drag also the blank space before the word, although it doesn't seem to be selected (same result, if you copy or cut and paste) => bug
After undo blank space is selected => expected result
Result after step five is also expected

So simpler steps to reproduce
1. open a new document and write "one two three" in a line
2. Double click "two" (only the word seems to be selected) and drag it behind "three" => blank space is also dragged
3. Undo => blank space is incuded into selection

=> I changed bug summary and hope you agree.

Telesto, since you report a lot of bugs: Please try to figure out what really happens. This would reduce the work for all people who try to reproduce your reports.
