For reproduce the error, you don't have to select the object then you
want to move the object. Try to think that a user, for an error, don't
select an object (so it select no objects) when he want to move an object.
You have to do the move operation two times, so:
select move, select the first point to move, the second point (for
distance), select the start point for the rectangle (into a point where
are no objects), select the second point of the rect (where are no
objects), so you have create a rectangle where no objects are present
(so don't select any object!), after try to move the same object, but
now when the program ask you to select an object, you have to select the
object, but the program don't move it, and an error appear.

I hope you understand my explain. :)
