Setup like this:

1. Type a one-liner in a text frame

2. Set top margin inset to 2 mm

3. Set height of text frame to 1,9 mm - overflow visible or not makes no difference Correction: Overflow has to be visible

Result 1: No overflow warning

4. Click the top or bottom centered handle of text frame. Normally used to fit the frame to adapt to the height of the text

Result 2: The text frame jumps to the upper left corner of the page, every single character (except spaces) is aligned vertically, all values for this text frame in the Transform panel have the value 0 (changing height or width do not change anything)

Regardless of the top margin inset, your text frame needs to be taller for the overflow warning to show while the frame is selected. If the frame were not selected, and if you had View > Show Text Flow selected, you would still see the warning. This is, I thinnk, just the already discussed problem with the warning not showing for short text frames. And if it gets much shorter then even the warning from Show Text Flow can disappear.

Your other problem is something I haven't seen before.

I have no problem if there is no warning, because I made the frame so small/smaller on purpose. Just the frame jumping was irritating. Originally the text was 5pt, which made it hard to locate while hiding on a black background. As a sidenote: If you deselect the text frame and try to select it again, you even can't type in the width and height with the Transform panel.
