Description selesium 2014-07-26 12:12:03 UTC
Problem description: 
I try to use the formula to do modulus on the cell A1, but LibreOffice replaces A1 by A10. This happens every time, in every cell.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Spreadsheet
2. Edit a cell
3. Type '=MOD(A1,2)' (or another number than 2)
4. confirm edit in any way

Current behavior:
The content of the cell is replaced by '=MOD(A10,2)'. Yielding 'Err:509' probably because A10 is an empty cell.

Expected behavior:
The cell keeps its content and calculates the modulus of A1.
Note that for other cells than A1, spreadsheet behaves as it should.
Operating System: Windows 8
Version: release

What UI language do you use?
It works for me with a semicolon instead of a colon,
(in Tools/options/LODev/Formula, you must use ";" as separator for function, which seems to be the default)
