I can reproduce this exactly.
The cause is that the Move tool is set to move paths but after
scaling an item you are working on a floating selection. Therefore
you see this cursor symbol and moving doesn't work.
To solve this, go to the Move tool and in the first line of the tool
properties dialog ('Move') click the first toggle button ('Layer').
Then try to move again.
I hope this helps.
