I heard this bug from Michael Meeks, so I am not the only person who met the problem.

As a reference, what Excel does in such cases is to set external reference to the original document in the copied chart object.  I guess we could do the same here.

I'll take it for now.

I'd like to tackle this for 3.5 (if I can).
