Hello!

I found a bug in Calc just now:

When you copy a cell and double click on another to edit the contents in it and then paste the copied cell, Calc will crash as soon as you leave the cell edition mode by pressing Return. It seems as if Calc wants to replace the whole Cell and not only keep the pasted content.

The following message appears:
"You are pasting data into cells that already contain data. Do you really want to overwrite the existing data?"

If you choose yes, the cell will be replaced, Calc crashes and saves the document with the replaced cell for recovery.
If you choose no, the cell will not be modified, Calc crashes and saves the document without any changes in this cell.

I installed OOo 2.4 RC5 (german) and it doesn't have this bug.

But it seems as if this version of OOP is still based on OOo RC1... maybe it's a bug in the "old" OOo code.

I have attached an example document.

Steps to reproduce:
1.) Select A1.
2.) Press Ctrl+C (copy the cell)
3.) Double click on B1.
4.) Press Ctrl+V (paste the content)
5.) Leave the cell edition mode by pressing Return.

Calc will not crash if you leave the cell edition mode by clicking on another cell.

I'm using:
OOo_2.4.0_080221_Win32Intel_install.exe
Windows XP Pro SP3 RC2 v.3311

    Thank you for the report. I will upload the latest windows version, so we can check it out.

    OOP won't crash any more, but the behaviour still isn't like before:
    - You need to press Return 2 times, to leave the edition mode completely after entering it by double clicking on a cell with existing data.
    - The clipboard is emptied after that.

    But I assume, that rather is (or was?) an OOo problem than an OOP problem.

    Build 14 also solves the other problems. :)

    So is it closeable?
