I had this issue too, with regard to not being able to move ArcText.
I found that if you run the arctext command you can then move the arctext you were trying to move in the first place.
You shouldn't need to explode or run dtexted, just run the arctext command and all should work again.
Hope this helps.
Create a separate arc on a no plot layer.
Create the ArcText on this arc.
When you need to move or copy the ArcText, just pick up both the no-plot arc and the ArcText and make your change.
