screenshot of Navigator's selection rectangle

In Writer in Navigator selection of item shown incorrectly if item has subfolders.
In screenshot we see that among Headings we see one on blue background, but dotted rectangle is on wrong place. Size of dotted rectangle always corresponds to size of blue rectangle. But position not always. Often it corresponds (in horizontal dimension) to subitem.

Steps to reproduce:
0. Start Writer, enable Navigator and Stylist panes
1. Enter 2 lines of text
2. Assign "Headings 1" to first line and "Headings 2" to second
3. in Navigator double click first heading (it unfolds)
4. click one time first heading (dotted rectangle becomes on wrong place)
(if unsuccessful, repeat steps 3 and 4 again)

reproduced in 3.3.4 and 3.5.3 on Fedora 64 bit and Windows 7 32 bit

REPRODUCIBLE with LibreOffice (Build-ID: 235ab8a-3802056-4a8fed3-2d66ea8-e241b80), German langpack installed, on MacOS X 10.6.8 German.

It may be necessary to repeat step 3 and 4 of Sasha's description, but then I see the dotted rectangle at the wrong place, just like on Sasha's screenshot.
