Regardless of where one copies the formatting from, once the formatting has been pasted and some editing is performed, Shift + arrow keys select all cells from A1.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Go to an arbitrary cell and press Format Paintbrush.
2. Copy the formatting to to any other arbitrary cell, optionally edit content, and press Enter.
3. Press shift + arrow keys to select multiple cells.
Calc treats it as if all the cells from A1 to the current cell were selected. So Shift + Down selects A2:<current cell>, Shift + Right selects B1:<current cell> and Shift + Up/Left selects A1:<current cell>.
Selecting a rectangular region starting from the originally selected cell.
I can confirm with Version: 22.214.171.124.alpha2+
Build ID: 2f342c61616418c6ad7303d7f5efa27a28378681

Same problem in LibreOffice 3.5.0 Build ID: d6cde02, setting version to oldest known.
I can reproduce this in LibreOffice 3.3.0, but not OOo 3.3.0 - so this appears to be one of our rare first release bugs
Migrating Whiteboard tags to Keywords: (preBibisect)
Still reproducible with LO 126.96.36.199.0+ and master (Version: 188.8.131.52.alpha0+
Build ID: 43109b751bf5fd36318de56b2fb686acc724673f) built at home under Ubuntu 15.10 x86-64.
That said, the button "clone formatting" is not anymore in the default formatting toolbar and it is not in the sidebar.
It is enough to deselect and reselect the current cell to prevent this weird behavior. So lowering the importance of this bug.
