I have no idea what you've got going on in the steps.

I guess you mean "Hold Ctrl-Tab", if the idea is to insert tabulator characters in the table in order to make the height grow?

Step 9 involves hitting Ctrl-Y *until* the tab key presses appear?

I didn't observe anything unusual.

1. Open Writer
2. Insert a table 
3. Choose a table style: Box list blue
4. Put the cursor in the table and Hold tab to few rows get added (fine)
5. CTRL+A
6. CTRL+X
7. CTRL+V
8. CTRL+Z everything
9. CTRL+Y everything
10. Place cursor in table and hold tab 

Table expands in blue (not gray/white)

Steps where slightly incomplete..

I don't get it. Table expands in whatever the row is that I placed my cursor in!! Blue, gray, white, just as I would expect it to. What is the point?

To clarify step 5, Ctrl-A to select the Tab characters you just inserted.

Ok, the problem was that you had apparently customised your keyboard shortcuts, so Tab was inserting new rows. I had no way of knowing what you were actually doing, when you pressed Tab.

I reproduce now. It does not matter, if the table is inserted via toolbar button and later styled or if it is inserted via Table menu.

I tested with 4.4.7, Table menu & Autoformat - Yellow for a 2-row table. The alternating row styles are not realised at all, when I first start inserting rows. So I guess the process was improved at a later point.

@Jim
You did quite a number of those lovely table style issues in the past. For example bug 126833 Not sure if you're still interested, or grown out of fixing this type of bugs

Looks like the table style is lost before the undo redo steps. To see this, move the cursor into the table after repro step 7. Notice no table style is highlighted in the sidebar styles deck table panel. I think copy/cut and paste may be the place to begin investigating.
