I can confirm that on this particular document the problem exists but I can't reproduce from scratch. I also see that you have some strange style going on in this document (Text body.MsoNormal) no clue what that's all about. 

How did you originally create the document? Also I found that when you play with the document by adding spaces (pushing enter) at the end of the first line you can then paste no problem.

Because I can confirm the problem with the document I will mark as NEW but getting quite low priority unless we can reproduce from scratch.

Bodhi Linux
Version 4.0, 4.1, 4.2 master

New (confirmed)
Minor ( can slow down work but not prevent high quality work)
Lowest ( we have one test case, I can't reproduce from blank document)

Well it looks like a funky document somehow, but I reproduced anyway.

I can reproduce this issue in 
Version: (x64)
Build ID: 04982dc8f56e3a960b4d42b0ec57fc5cb8a01aa3
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 10.0; UI render: default; 
TinderBox: Win-x86_64@42, Branch:master, Time: 2017-12-04_01:29:50
Locale: de-DE (de_DE); Calc: CL

If I paste text to the existing paragraph from an external source (like Firefox), there is no issue. 
If I paste text via 'insert mode', the issue appears, too.
In the paragraph of the third bullet there is no "space" after the word. If I paste a word directly after this word, -two- space are set between them, not one.

As Buovjaga often says and sometimes does, retest shows that some are really WFM.
