When you use "select table" from within a table, the table is marked for selection. However if you press ^X (Ctrl+x), the table contents (each cell) is cut, but not the table.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add some table with data
2. from inside a cell select "table->select->table"
3. Press ^X
An empty table remains
The table a s a whole should have been deleted
User Profile Reset: No
table->delete->table would do it, but why is this special case needed at all?
