Not a FAQ.

OK, I see it.  It requires \subsection immediately after the
wrapfig.  It is that "local group" bugaboo again -- if the
wrapping starts in a local group, it doesn't end properly.
I hope I get a chance to work on it soon.

However, if you use "{Test}" it will fail,

It can overlap, but not with the section first.  (I thought
sections used to work as the first-wrapped material, whereas
lists did not.)

As a work-around for now, you should be able to do:

\begin....
\end{wrapfigure}
\noindent\vspace{-????}
\subsection*{...}

The amount of vspace should be \baselineskip plus whatever
space is put before section titles.
