If a row is copied and pasted onto another row in a Table, the text and formatting is copied as expected.
However merged cells are un-merged, so the text ends up in the wrong columns, and some text is duplicated.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
1. Start Writer, insert a table with (say) 5 rows and 5 columns
2. Select two adjacent cells in a row, click the "Merge" icon (or Table->Merge).\
Insert unique text into every visible cell in the row
3. Select all cells in the row. Control-C to copy
4. Select all cells in another row. Control-P to paste
RESULTS: The merged-ness of the copied cells is lost, and text is pasted into the wrong cells. Text in the first column is duplicated in the last column
EXPECTED RESULTS: The pasted-onto row should look exactly like the source row.
