There are a couple of ways that I can do it: I can group the text with the rectangle, and use the center of the group as the anchor for the connector, or I can leave them ungrouped and use the center of the rectangle.

I'd encourage you to submit bug reports on each of these issues,
including example files, if there are not already bug reports on them.
