Sample has been created with blank new document created from LibO Start Center with 2 times insert default table.

Critical because very "normal" proceeding
Comment 1 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2012-06-23 01:31:01 UTC
Already [Reproducible] with "LibreOffice 3.3.3  German UI/Locale [OOO330m19 (Build:301) tag libreoffice-] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) and
OOo 3.2-dev, so inherited from OOo.

NEW due to Original AOOo report
OS=ALL because also reproduced with LibO 3.5.3 on Ubunu 12 64bit (VirtualBox)

Very old bug without report, so i think it's not MAB

https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=119954 status:
commit http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=revision&revision=1352828

Maybe we should mark such bugs in some way? This would allow devs to import the code when possible (for 3.7 at earliest).
Comment 3 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2012-06-29 03:48:57 UTC
These bugs are more or less marked by the "See Also" URL.
There still are some licensing issues, but it's planned to try to benefit from the AOOo fixes. I am in contact with Michael Meeks concerning further proceeding, when there is a solution I will post it on QA mailing list.

Seems cherry-picked: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=a0bd65d2e0e6813f47221ae52092cdb4e748c0e6

I indeed can not reproduce this behavior anymore using LibreOffice Version: Build ID: 467d5e0a2e074ff2afb4d1b1a37cff2094b0895

Following our release plan (https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleasePlan/4.1#4.1.0_release) : Hard feature freezed & branched libreoffice-4-1 	Week 21, May 20 - May 26, 2013

Based on that this will be included in 4.1.0 too.
