Testcase: Text is not editable with recent 3.5.* LO

Problem description:
Since the 3.5.x releases text boxes in headers are no more editable.
In the 4.0beta 1 the bug seems fixed.

In the document source the affected box is in styles.xml:
<draw:text-box><text:p text:style-name="foo">Maintitle</text:p><text:p text:style-name="bar">Subtitle</text:p></draw:text-box>


<draw:text-box><table:table table:name="Tabelle2" table:style-name="Tabelle2"><table:table-column table:style-name="Tabelle2.A"/><table:table-row table:style-name="Tabelle2.1"><table:table-cell table:style-name="Tabelle2.A1" office:value-type="string"><text:p text:style-name="MP2">Some Text</text:p></table:table-cell></table:table-row><table:table-row table:style-name="Tabelle2.2"><table:table-cell table:style-name="Tabelle2.A2" office:value-type="string"><text:p text:style-name="MP3"/></table:table-cell></table:table-row></table:table><text:p text:style-name="Sender"/></draw:text-box>

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open attached testcase in LO>=3.5
2. Try to change the existing text

Current behavior:
Cannot select and edit text.

Expected behavior:
Select text and edit. This worked before the new header/footer handling in 3.5.

In our case users cannot adapt their template headers.
Operating System: All
