Steps:
a. Create a frame
b. Drag an upward staff spacer onto the staff directly under the text frame. When you drag its handle upwards it goes straight through the text frame and the staff does not move.

Comments

THis might be somewhat intentional. Staff spacers normally affect distance between *staves*, and a frame is not a staff. Probably wouldn't be a bad idea to change this, so frames count also. But FWIW, if you want to increase the distance between a frame and the next system, you can use the Inspector to set the "Bottom gap" of the frame.

But the downward spacer does move the frame that is below it. If it was consistant I wouldn't have thought it was a bug. Also the fact that if the frame is not there, the staff pushes away from the top of the page.
