2. Write another line of text with different format (e.g. bold):

yyy (<= bold)

3. Copy the second text ("yyy", Ctrl+C)

xxxxxxyyy (yyy is bold)

5. Undo (Ctrl+Z):

xxxxxx (same as 1.)

6. Insert unformatted text at eop of line 1 (Ctrl+Shift+V):

Changing priority:

Minor - doesn't prevent high quality work, just slows it down a little

Low - default for minor bugs, easy work around, doesn't slow down work that much

LibO: Build ID: 3a87456aaa6a95c63eea1c1b3201acedf0751bd5 (32 bit)
on Win7 Pro SP1 (64 bit)

The problem only occur if the cursor is at the end of a paragraph (end of document, end of a table cell (see #50713), ...) but not in the middle of a text.

And it is very annoying, because you always have to ensure, that you have at least a space after the cursor on paste, or you have to change manually the formating after inserting text with different formatting! So I do not agree with comment 4.
