Draw Inside - can't select object / group to move

When using Draw inside, I can't select the object. This has been happening for quite a while. I have a bear - his belly and his nose are draw in side of the shapes. All the parts are grouped together. If I use the selection tool on the tail, ear or the legs I can move him as expected.

 

First screenshot shows move tool over leg and smart guides - everything work as it should.

I can't us the move tool to move the goup over the head or the belly - second screenshot shows how the move tool doesn't grab the object but drags out a selection box instead. As long as I continue to drag outside the bounds, it will select the whole group, but then I have to click to drag again to move the bear. It should just grab, select and move the entire group with one mouse click.

Draw inside makes a clipping mask. You cannot grab them when clicking on the fill of the clipping path. But that (sadly) is nothing new or related to the method of Draw inside.

I don't remember that being the case previously but I guess I've never tried to grab a clipping mask and move it before. It's annoying... And even more annoying that this is the current lesson in the Classroom in a Book...
