Perhaps try renaming your User Profile? Sudden change in behavior or
weird wonkiness might be down to something going wonky in the User
Renaming the profile means you can still get back to it if it doesn't
fix things so it's a good way to "get back to factory defaults".
Good luck and regards from

I have an inconsistent and not often issue with Calc. [...]
Calc does weird things now and then. [...] Sometimes, I

formula, then when I press a directional arrow, my calculation
will disappear and a : will reside in that cell. Sometimes,
I'll just move an arrow key, or the mouse to move from one
cell to another and wherever I move will highlight as if I was
holding down the Shift key. [...] This all started in early
July. [...] I changed different versions of LibreOffice (vs
4). I have LO 4.3.0, 4.2.5, 4.2.2, 4.1.4, 4.1.3, 4.1.2, and
4.0.3 (which I am currently using). I still had the same
issues with whichever version used.
I discussed the issues and history with another tech and he
reasoned (the same as I) that LO was having memory conflict
issues with one or more simultaneous running programs.
What, you mean that LibreOffice - in many different versions - is
improperly sharing memory with other programs for you but not for
anyone else? And why would that behaviour change in early July?
Perhaps you should sack your "tech".
My questions are: Has anyone else experienced the same?
I doubt it - at least, not as a problem with the software.
Does my reasoning sound feasible?
If you spend a lot of time on one project or using one
application, it is very easy to blame a more general problem with
your computer on the particular application.
o Try draining the spilt coffee from your keyboard.
o Try shaking the biscuit crumbs from your keyboard.
o Try poking out the cat hairs from your keyboard.
o Try running your computer manufacturer's diagnostics (especially
those for the keyboard).
o Try attaching an external keyboard and using for a sufficient
period to test.
o Does your notebook have a trackpad? Is your thumb or palm
grazing the trackpad as you move your fingers about? You won't
believe this is possible, so get someone else to watch as you use
the system for a period. Try temporarily disabling the trackpad or
reducing its sensitivity to test.
I trust this helps.
