Summary0017013: selecting an object over a full page background image

I have a full page background image (in an image box),
and anytime I click "into the page", that background image would be selected...
AND I won't be able to select anything else anymore...
until I click outside of that background image (image box in the background)...

I think this might be a bug...
Steps To Reproduceplace an image box in the page, level 1, full page...

place a text box over it, smaller, not full page

place an image in the image box, and text in the text box,

click on the image...

then click on the text.... <<--- nothing will happen... still the image in the background (that image box) will be selected...
Tagsimage box, locked image, overlapping, selecting, selecting object, text box

when I change the underlying image box to smaller than full page,
the behavior is normal...
but as soon as it is full page large,
the above behavior will present itself...

another note!

the underlying image box doesn't have to be full page large...
it only has to be larger and fully "containing" / "covering" the overlying text box...

when the image box is not fully "covering" it (from beneath),
the behavior is normal

so, this really might be a bug...

you should probably use layers for that.

- add a layer below the current one
- put the image on that layer
- switch back to the default layer
- now the image will be in the background and (if you don't want to) it won't be selected anymore.
