The graph in calc (correct one)

Problem description: 

Whenever I copy some Graph based on Date/Time to Draw to export it, X-Axis description is wrong

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a "time based" table
2. Create a Diagram (XY-sorted, while first col keeps the date/time)
3. Copy the Diagram to draw to export it.

Current behavior:
TT.MM.JJ HH:MM from cell formatting applies to graph in current document, but when copied to draw, year, date and time changes.

Expected behavior:
Graph in Draw should look like the one in Calc

This still doesn't work in on OS X 10.8.3. However, for me Draw doesn't display a wrong date, it just displays some random number, which seems to be some kind of serial date (2011-10-15 16:00:00 becomes 40831,67, if that helps).

I have found a workaround, perhaps this also helps track down the bug: double-click the diagram in Calc, secondary-click the x-axis, select "Format axis..." (I don't know if this is the correct label in the English locale, it's "Achse formatieren..." in German), then uncheck "Source format" ("Quellenformat") in the dialog that pops up. Click OK, then copy the diagram to Draw again - you will see that it now works as expected.

Not reproducible for me with LibreOffice built at home under Ubuntu 14.10 x86-64.

Closing as WorksForMe. Please, feel free to reopen if you still encounter the same issue with one of the current stable versions or the master.

Best regards. JBF
