Description klsu 2014-11-07 04:21:02 UTC
Steps to reproduce:

1. Create a spreadsheet worksheet named "MMM".
2. In cell B1 enter the formula:
The formula evaluates to MMM (the sheet name).
3. Copy the worksheet to the same workbook. LibreCalc names the new sheet "MMM_2" and cell B1 on the new sheet evaluates to MMM_2 (the new sheet name).
4. Double-click on the new sheet tab and rename the sheet "HD". Cell B1 still displays MMM_2, and entering something on the sheet to cause the sheet to be recalculated does not cause cell B1 to be updated.
5. Copy Cell B1 to an empty cell on the same sheet. The copy evaluates to HD.
6. Repeat from step 4. as often as you like.

Saving, closing and reopening the workbook will cause CELL("filename",rc) to be recalculated correctly.
