Data copied from a data source changes protection of cells when pasted.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Press F4 to open datasources and select one
2. Protect some cells and leave other cells unprotected
3. Protect the table/spreadsheet
4. Select all data from the data source and paste it in the unprotected cells
The cells that were unprotected as become uneditable.
The cells maintain their unprotected state.

After pasting some biblio database records into unprotected cells they became uneditable and I got a warning "Protected cells can not be modified" error.

I can't reproduce this in any version. Maybe there's some finesse about "Select all data from the data source and paste it in the unprotected cells".
I'll mark as Invalid. Could be a duplicate of See Also.
