Actually, NeoOffice is not a fully native, from the ground up Mac OS X application - it is arguably even less of that than AppleWorks is. It is a port of OpenOffice.org which is being adapted to use more and more Mac OS conventions (mainly through the use of Java and Mac OS Xs support for that) but it is not fully "aquafied" and it does not obey the Apple HIG in as many instances as the developers or the end users would like. Therefore, it suffers from a number of limitations imposed by OOo, one of which you have found. Another limitation is that OOo follows the paradigms set by MS Office, so even if it was a native OS X app, it would still exhibit some quirks wrt text selection, because MS Office does things differently too...
