Can't have a header image around the page body?

I'm trying to add a page border art by inserting a vector image (.EMF) in the header (please see the attached document).

However, it appears that having an image in the header that's larger than the text in the body of the page leads to annoying interferences with editing the text, mainly that right-clicking in the text ends up selecting the image instead of popping up the context menu, despite:
* placing the image in the header
* sending it to back
* setting the Wrap type to “Background”

LibreOffice Writer Version 4.0.3.3 (Build ID: 0eaa50a932c8f2199a615e1eb30f7ac74279539)

Hi Dan,
Thanks for your report.
May I summarise it that it's impossible to set a background beyond the page margins?
Anyway: the current behaviour is inherrited from OOo, so set the version to 3.3.0 and as an enhancment request.
From what I know, this is mostly solved by just setting an image in the background. And then it can be anchored in a heading too.
Regards,
Cor
