A rectangle shape that I can not select with rectangle selection
the attached file is an ODG document with just a rectangle. I can select it by clicking on it with the mouse cursor. However, I can not select it with the mouse "rectangle selection" (click-and-slide to make a rectangle selection area). More precisely, I can not select it most of the times. Sometimes, rarely, 1 in 10 tries, the selection works... I've never seen that problem with OO. I can select other shapes without problem.
Additional information: the rectangle in the attached example can be selected without any problem with OpenOffice 3.2.1
The bug is still there in LibreOffice 3.4.3

This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:

Bug still present in LibreOffice 126.96.36.199
reproduced in 3.6.1 on Fedora 64 bit
How to produce such picture:
Start LO Draw, draw rectangle (or some another shape), right mouse click, "Position and size" in context menu, tab "Rotation", angle 270 degree.
Now shape becomes not selectable by dragging selection rectangle
Not reproduced with LO 188.8.131.52, Mac OS X 10.6.8.
More than 10 tries to drag-select the rectangle in the attachment and a new rectangle rotated 270° - all successful.
Confirmed on Debian Linux with the same LO version. "rectangle selection" is now possible again.
Thanks for the update. If we don't have a specific commit fixing this problem, correct status would be WORKSFORME.
