Please see the attached example document.
It isn't possible to delete a selected column from a table if some adjacent cells are merged.
This issue does not affect Calc, only Writer!
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a 3x2 table.
2. Merge 2 of the 3 columns in one row.
3. Select and delete an un-merged column in the other row.
Many different and unselected columns are deleted.
Only the selected column is deleted.

This is happening because when the columns is selected, cell A4 is selected as well.
