Description Chris Peñalver 2012-04-14 17:23:01 UTC
Downstream report may be found at:

1) lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu precise (development branch)
Release: 12.04

2) apt-cache policy libreoffice-writer
  Installed: 1:3.5.2-2ubuntu1
  Candidate: 1:3.5.2-2ubuntu1
  Version table:
 *** 1:3.5.2-2ubuntu1 0
        500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise/main i386 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

3) What is expected to happen in LibreOffice Writer via the Terminal:

cd ~/Desktop && wget https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/462564/+attachment/894856/+files/test.odt && lowriter -nologo test.odt

is when one highlights the second column of the table -> secondary clicks -> Column -> Delete is only that column is deleted. Please see movie for more details: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/462564/+attachment/894864/+files/out.ogv

4) What happens instead is the whole table is deleted.

WORKAROUND: Split the table then delete the column.

[Reproducible] with "LibreOffice" German UI/Locale [Build-ID: 281b639-6baa1d3-ef66a77-d866f25-f36d45f] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) 

Splitting first cell heals the problem

This one might be more an enhancement request than a bug
