I'm not interesting in joining the mailing list or another membership, got plenty already!  So I'm 
just sending you the details and someone else can post it.  You can contact me if you want any more 

Operating System:  Windows XP SP3 (up to date)
Libre version:  LibreOffice 3.4.4 OOO340m1 (Build:402)
Notepad:  Version 5.1 (Build 2600.xpsp_sp3_gdr.111025-1629 : Service Pack 3)

Notepad was set to word wrap and not full screen.  This meant some lines were wrapping.

Highlight entire contents of Notepad using Ctrl+A.
Copy using Ctrl+C.
Select top left cell on a Calc worksheet, previously used and all previous contents deleted.
Paste, using Ctrl+V and accepting defaults on dialog box that comes up.

My data was strangely laid out.  Investigation showed that the data had been pasted as though each 
wrapped line was a new line of data.  (Most lines were not wrapped, mainly some around the middle 
of the file.)  Tabs in Notepad had correctly separated data into new columns but wrapped lines had 
been treated as a new line of data and started in column 1 on the following row to that which they 
belonged to.

I tested again and got the same result.
I then turned off word wrap and the data pasted correctly.
I may have tried pasting again into the old sheet at this point - if so, results not recalled.
I tried pasting to a new, unused worksheet (two or three times) with wrap turned on and each line 
of data pasted as it should, without wrapping forcing a new line.
I tried again to paste into the previously used sheet while wrap was on and the data pasted as it 
should, instead of wrapped forcing a new line.(!)
I have since been unable to replicate the bug.

If I come up with any further useful information, I'll send it and reference this email's date and 

Please don't forward anything I send you unless you are SURE that everyone you're forwarding it to, 
already has my email address.  Use copy and paste instead (Ctrl + C and Ctrl + v).  THANKS!!

I also experienced similar behavior long time ago between Notepad and Eclipse IDE and/or some other IDE. I don't think it's LibreOffice's fault. Try Notepad++ instead of vanilla Notepad.
