Create a chart in Calc, where some cells contain function ( =sum(), in particular, please see attached "demo.ods"). Copy that chart and paste in Impress; observe that all cell functions are lost, only the calculated results remain (please see attached "demo.odp"). If the same thing is done in Excel and Powerpoint, all the cell functions remain. In fact LO can handle that kind of file quite well (please see attached "msoffice.odp", I open the result .ppt in Impress and save it to .odp).

you mean in Menu Insert->Object-> Ole object -> spreadsheet?
No. Just the most simple 'copy and paste' action: right click the chart in Calc, and then right click in Impress and 'paste'.
The chart copied to Impress is not an 'inserted spreadsheet object' like your mentioned method does. Please compare 'demo.odp' and 'msoffice.odp'.
Copy/paste is not the same as insert OLE object. If you want the result of copy/paste action should be as insert OLE object, then it's not a bug, maybe enhancement, but for me I doesn't see why this should be changed. The result you can obtain with Insert->Object-> Ole object -> spreadsheet. Maybe I misunderstood..
If I need all the functionalities of the original chart, why can't I do it in a simple 'copy & paste' action? Also there is no easy way to create chart from the data of an inserted spreadsheet (I can't find it yet).
Users don't expect to lose some functionalities when they do a 'copy & paste' across applications, especially when LO is advertised as a tightly-integrated suite. If someone do need a simple chart only (I don't know what exact kind of object the chart is), they may use 'paste...' to paste a trimmed-down version of the chart.

Does Microsoft Office behave like you wish LibO would do?
I agree with raal. Copy and paste of chart behaves as designed, so closing as NotABug.
If you want propose a change in this behavior, please fill an enhancement request. Do not miss to explain in what way this enhancement is a good thing and will make the LO users life easier.
