From IRC, can be reproduced by me.
1. Open a new calc spreadsheet.
2. Drag an image onto the spreadsheet.
3. Observe what happens
Image is inserted like in Insert > Picture > From File
Image is opened in Draw
This is believed to be a regression from LO 3.5
This is present in 184.108.40.206 as well.
Problem does not occur with TDF/LOv220.127.116.11 under Ubuntu 10.04 x86_64. It does occur with TDF/LOv18.104.22.168 under both Ubuntu 10.04 x86_64 and Win7HP. I have changed the platform from "Windows (All)" to "All" as a result. Drag and drop behaviour is normal for (TDF/LOv22.214.171.124) Writer and Impress.
Created attachment 79988 [details]
reproduced in LibO 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 under Win7 64bit.
works fine in 3.5.7. I haven't tried 3.6.0 to 3.6.6 releases
Reproduced in MacOSX 10.8.5 and LibreOffice 184.108.40.206
(In reply to comment #3)
I had a look through these changes and the only one I can see that might be related to Draw is:
Is it possible this commit caused the change in behaviour?

There are indeed several treads describing the same problem for dragging into Writer, Impress and Calc. I started having this problem after upgrading from MacOSX 10.6.8 to 10.9 (apparently a problem from 10.7+). This still persists in LO 220.127.116.11. On Fedora 20 I don't have the problem.
The behaviour changed as of the below commit.

fdo#50694: Honor the preferred filter returned by type detection.
Because that filter is more reliable.
Didnt reproduce this on 4.1.6, 4.3.5, 4.5 master on Windows 7 when dragging an image from Windows Explorer, and didnt reproduce this on 4.1.6 or 4.5 master on Linux Mint 13 when dragging it from the desktop, so if this is only mac related, then it should be closed as a duplicate of bug 44621.

Didn't reproduce too with LibreOffice 18.104.22.168.0+ built at home under Ubuntu 14.10 x86-64.
I agree with Jay, it seems to be a MacOS only issue, so a duplicate of bug 44621.
Best regards. JBF
