three demonstrations

Problem description: 
the size of the caption is different in at least 3 ways.

if the object is small enough and/or the description is long enough and you select above as location of the desc. the object is below the border of the caption.

if there's just some text a part of the object is within the borders (when selecting above)

if below is selected, there is some (unnecessary?) whitespace above the object, but the whole object is within the caption.

Steps to reproduce:
1. create object
2. create caption
3. select above as location for description

Expected behavior:
consistent enclosure.

Guessed problem:
it seems like the height of the caption isn't recalculated / extended when text joins the object within the captions borders, when "above" is selected.

Operating System: All
Version: rc

Confirmed in Linux Mint in 4.1.6, 4.2.5, 4.3.0 and master that when inserted above, the frame size isnt enlarged to fit the text added above and when inserted below, it adds a space between the top of the frame and the image. Wasnt able to reproduce on lower versions as the position drop down was disabled.

Still reproducible.

Frame does not surround object when caption is above.
