An XY chart in Impress showing the spurious 'data labels' series

When a chart has been copied from Calc to Impress, viewing the Chart Data Table shows that the 'Data Labels' column contains dates which were not present in the original chart. 

Steps to reproduce:

1. Create XY scatter chart
2. Select 'First Column as Label'
3. Copy-paste chart into Impress
4. view Chart Data Table from the right-click context menu

When viewed in LibreOffice, this does not appear to cause obvious problems. However, I have no access to Microsoft Office to to test if this reduces compatibility.

This behaviour appears to be limited to XY charts.

Reproducible on Mint 17 (64-bit) and Manjaro (64-bit).
