Falsely presented warning message
When pasting the contents of the clipboard into any cell, the warning about pasting and possibly overwriting data shows every time. If a cell is initially empty, pasting from the clipboard cannot overwrite data, and so there should not be a warning message.
See attached screenshot.
You have probably some formatting (conditionnaly formatting) in your empty cell.
I think this warning message should be sent only when there is real data (value or formula) in the cell.
Kohei: what do you about that?
Best regards. JBF
The problem occurs even after a cell has been emptied [select - <Backspace> - "delete all" - <OK>].
If there is conditional formatting remaining in the cell after that, then it probably still should not give a "overwrite contents" warning.
Yes, that should not warn about the overwrite.
I have a pretty good idea why this is so. BTW the same thing won't happen when the destination only has cell background colors. This only happens with cells with borders.

I wondered why it affected only _some_ empty formatted cells.
I just confirmed, it seems to only affect border formatted cells.
Fixed on master for 3.4.
