Reproduced and I agree it would be good to have column deletion follow the logic of row deletion in case of merged cells.

test case and instructions for reproduction

Problem still exists but behaviour is different under 
Version: (x64)
Build-ID: 6b8ed514a9f8b44d37a1b96673cbbdd077e24059
CPU-Threads: 4; BS-Version: Windows 6.1; UI-Render: Standard; Layout-Engine: neu; 
Gebietsschema: de-DE (de_DE); Calc: group

While it is still possible to delete Row 2
deletion of culumn 2 in the mirrored table is now forbidden (delete column is greyed out)
This change of behaviour is not improving the situation. The desired result is not achieved and I can not see how to achieve it... (no bypass solution!)

Original bug is now resolved in 7.5+, confirmed with other duplicates. 

attachment 126378 [details] has a weird behavior so I cannot test. 
I cannot select in 2nd table, and that's not related to fixing commit, same is before in 7.5+.
In 7.4 I can select in table but cannot delete columns. 
Also in 6.0 cannot select, in 5.3 cannot delete.
I don't know how 

I will report and See Also, let this bug remain a duplicate as it was.
