I've tried the same steps myself. If it is a normal layer then everything's fine - however if it is still floating then the select tools produce this cropping-like behavior. Is that deliberate?
Seems to me it is. The floating selection appears to be intended to modify the layer from which it was taken; it does not extend that layer's boundaries.
