3) What is expected to happen in LibreOffice Calc via the Terminal:
cd ~/Desktop && wget https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openoffice.org/+bug/742483/+attachment/1940068/+files/test.tsv && localc -nologo test.tsv
in the text import window, highlight the Separated by radio button -> check the Tab checkbox -> uncheck all other checkboxes -> delete the contents of the Text delimiter combo box -> click OK button and the preview should look the same as the imported file.
4) What happens instead is one of the single-quotes at the beginning of the cell is removed. If there are several initial single-quotes, only one is removed. Single quotes at the end of the cell are not changed.
NOT Reproducible with "LibreOffice 3.4.0 – WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) German UI [OOO340m1 (Build:12)]" and reporter's sample file (I renamed it to .csv, .tsv is a pain), all single quotes remain (pls. see attached screenshots). Playing with auto replace options did not lead to the bug.
Linux specific? Ubuntu specific? Version specific? Related to particular settings? We need more information!
Did you check and were you able to reproduce the problem? Can reporter of original launchpad bug report test again with 4.0?
