Test case

1. Open attached test file.
2. See how the legend is at a "correct" place in the graph.
3. Double click on the graph to edit it, and see how the legend jumps to the top-left corner.
4. Hit the "Reset layout" button, see the legend go to the correct place.
5. Save the file, close the file.
6. Restart from 1. and see how the problem reappears.

Sometimes, the legend changes position when editing the graph without even saving and reopening the file, which is terribly annoying. I've not been able to determine exactly when, but it's related to saving the file (without closing) and/or exporting to PDF (with PDF 1a option enabled).

I could reproduce this with LO  and

LO 3.5.4 just after opening

When I open the file in LibreOffice 3.5.4 from Debian Wheezy the legend is in right side of the chart. When I open it in LibreOffice 4.2.5 and the legend is in top left corner without any manipulations.

I am using, and I find that chart legends all revert to top left, as if the coordinates had not been saved or read in.  This happens with charts in Calc when the position or size of the legend has been altered from a default (I often do this to maximise chart space, with the legend repositioned to occupy either white space or some other solid part of the chart with no data detail to obscure).

Even simply editing the legend e.g. to provide a colour fill will cause its location to jump to the left of the chart if it was previously moved into position over the chart body.

In the legend appears in the top-left immediately after opening. But after changing its position (via legend propoerties->Position now), it's respected after save/reload. So maybe that's been fixed, maybe not (should the testcase document be opened correctly?).
