Please look at the attached screen shot.

If a CTRL+c is pressed on a merged cell, only the upper left partial cell is covered by a dashed border.

[Reproducible] with "LibreOffice German UI/Locale [Build-ID: dc9775d-05ecbee-0851ad3-1586698-727bf66] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) 
[Reproducible] with "LibreOffice 3.4.1 RC1 – WIN7  Home Premium  (64bit) English UI [OOO340m1 (Build:201)]", I believe that always has been as observed now.

"Crawling Ants" only around top left cell, but copy function works correct for all contents, for example centered string  outside dotted line rectangle.

Seems reporter uses Linux, so OS All correct.

looks like OOo doesn't have these "crawling ants" anyway.
