Steps to reproduce:
1. open any spreadsheet
2. press shift+arrow down (one or more times)
3. press shift+end
Current behavior: after step 3, the cells that where selected in step 2 are no longer part of the selection (neither are the other cells in the lines that where selected in step 2). Only the cells from the original cursor position to the end of line are selected.
Expected behavior: shift+end extends the selection to the end of the lines (like repeated shift+arrow right luckily does).
Operating System: Windows 7
Version: 3.5.3 release
Reporter's expectations differ from mine.
I can't tell whether this is wrong help or wrong behavior or whatever else, but we will not fix that, lifecycle 3.5 has been terminated.

Please feel free to reopen this bug if you still observe the problem with 22.214.171.124 or later.
This problem exists in Version 126.96.36.199
Need independent confirmation from QA - moving to UNCONFIRMED.
TESTING with LO 188.8.131.52.alpha2 + Ubuntu 14.04

I just tested, and it appears that order of operations affects the behavior here...
- Spreadsheet containing 3 rows of content
- Position the cursor on A1
Down, then Across:
- Shift-DownArrow to A3, then
- Result: 3 cells selected (A1:C1)
Across, then Down:
- Shift-End, then
- Shift-DownArrow to A3
- Result: 9 cells selected (A1:C3)
I think that Shift-(any)Arrow and Shift-End (and Shift-Home, which acts like Shift-End) should all have the same behavior, and continue to extend the selected region.
Marking as an enhancement (unless this is actually a regression).
Status -> NEW
This still occurs in LO 184.108.40.206 (on OS X).
Selecting *any* area followed by Shift-End or Shift-Home will cause the height of the selection to collapse to 1.
