Excel document causing the problem
Problem description: when copying cells from some microsoft excel files using excel all styles are copied across, even though they appear to be unused in the selected cells
Steps to reproduce:
1. copy cells in Microsoft Excel from attached document (e.g. cell A1)
2. paste into a new libreoffice document
Current behavior: cell is pasted, but a large number of styles are also copied from excel
Expected behavior: the cell is pasted and only relevant styles (probably none in this case) are copied across
Workaround: open excel file in libreoffice then copy across
Workaround2: copy from excel to a new libreoffice document, then copy from there to the real document
Additional problem: if you make the mistake of doing this you can unpaste using CTRL+Z, but you cannot remove the styles without deleting each one individually.
Tested using 220.127.116.11 and Version 18.104.22.168.alpha0+ (Build ID: 28b7359e00fec9fd3bfab3c9105cf250c4320a2)
TinderBox: Win-x86@6, Branch:master, Time: 2013-02-02_00:14:06
Operating System: Windows XP
Version: 22.214.171.124 release
I can confirm that with Version 126.96.36.199 (Build ID: a67943cd4d125208f4ea7fa29439551825cfb39) @Win7 x64

From the first workaround I understand that the problem is in the copy operation in MS-Excel. Then why incriminate LibreOffice ?
Closing as NotOurBug. Please, feel free to reopen if you disagree.
