Data that was cut out of contaminated file and pasted to a new file.
Contamination of 2 files that were open. One was a spreadsheet and the other was a document. A large part of the spreadsheet file became part of the document file.
Part of the data from the spreadsheet appeared as part of the document. But the data from the spreadsheet had borders and anchors (if that is the correct term) and looks to me like it could be the border for a large picture.
The files were quite large and were not created in a few days.
The only thing I can think of is that it must be some sort of memory management problem or virtual memory problem.
I cut out the contaminated part and pasted it into a new file.
After investigating the contends of the ODS-file it seems as if it contains the original table as embedded object, which also is editable. In the same way as what you get if you do Insert->Object->OLE Object->Create from file.
But as I don't know how it appeared here, I can't say if there is a bug. At least the resulting file seems to be well-structured (and the data in it can be extracted by copying)
My experiments where done in
Version 220.127.116.11.beta2 (Build ID: 4104d660979c57e1160b5135634f732918460a0)
