Description Eike Rathke 2019-03-22 11:28:45 UTC
A formula cell is not repainted after this procedure:

1. in A3:B4 enter the values 1, 2, 4, 8 (row-wise)
2. in C1 enter formula =SUM(A1:B1)
3. copy cell C1 to clipboard
4. paste onto C2:C4
5. select A3:B3
6. cut to clipboard
7. paste on A1
=> cell C1 is recalculated and displays 3
=> cell C3 still displays 0 and appears to not being recacluated, but in
fact it is just not repainted, as can be seen with a sequence of PageDn
and PageUp, or Shift+Ctrl+R, or anything else that attempts to obtain
the cell's value.

The same does not happen if steps #6 and #7 instead are performed using

It also does not happen if before step 5 a formula is added in some
(doesn't matter which) cell with =D3

Failure was observed while fixing bug 101002 and bug 123736.
