Description

In a print layout add a couple of items, select them and right-click, group them (groupA)
Selecting the group shows dotted boundaries of its items
Now create a new item and group it with the previous group --> groupB
Select the new group: it'll show boundaries of ALL the items (and not its direct children, namely the first group groupA and the last item) --> bug?
Deselect groupB and Select the groupA in the Items panel (as it can't be selected in the canvas): nothing is displayed (nota: if you select groupA just after groupB without deselection or another item selection, it shows groupB boundaries, which is also wrong ).
