2. Put the cursor into some cell and press Ctrl+A

Current behavior:
All text in the document is selected. 

Expected behavior:

Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: release

I just realize that it happens in documents created with previous versions of Libreoffice but not in documents created with Libreoffice-4.
Comment 2 André Desgualdo Pereira 2014-05-05 13:16:25 UTC
Forget the previous comment. 
The bug happens when a document has a table right at the top.

I confirm the bug.
It happens only when the table is the first thing in the document.

I confirm this bug on LibO Version:
Build ID: 420m0(Build:2) in Ubuntu Precise (from PPA).

For me Ctrl+A for selecting only cell is a great advantage of LibO over MSO Word.

For me this bug is reproducible if document has only table.
If I add some text before table this bug is not reproducible.
