Hi, I think I am misunderstanding some steps:

4) this is Ctrl+A right?
5) the text is still highlighted? I see a conflict between leaving the text highlighted (in which case you can't move the cursor and the text overwrites the original content) and clicking anywhere in the cell (in which case the text is pasted to wherever the cursor sits)

I'm experiencing a change in behavior. Is it a bug or by design?

1) Open a new Text Document in Writer
2) Insert a new Table (Ctrl+F12) with 1 row and 1 column
3) Type some text into the cell
4) Select the entire cell, not just the text within the cell, and Copy the cell (Ctrl+C)
5) Move the cursor anywhere within the cell except for the first position and Paste (Ctrl+V)

In Writer, the paste from step 5 would completely replace the contents of the cell 
with the contents from the clipboard.

In Writer, the paste from step 5 pastes another nested cell within the first cell. I 
prefer the behavior from Writer 4.3, although I don't know whether the new behavior in Writer 4.4 
is by design.

Note that Writer 4.4 behaves like Writer 4.3 (i.e. the paste from step 5 completely replaces the 
contents of the cell with the contents of the clipboard) if you move the cursor to the first 
position within the cell before pasting. This is a reasonable workaround, although it could slow me 
down somewhat.

Another workaround is to copy the text within the cell rather than copying the entire cell and then 
highlighting the entire cell before pasting. Again, this is a reasonable, though somewhat slower
