Text can be distributed within lines in various ways: left aligned,
centred, right aligned, or justified. The first three modes will
maintain constant, standard spacing between words, but the last
intentionally expands spaces between words in order to fill all lines
with text between the margins. If you don't want your text justified,
don't use that mode. The mode is specified on the Alignment tabs of
the Paragraph and Paragraph Style dialogues.

Can I interject a long-standing issue here, in which LO is by no means
the sole offender?

It seems that full justification is always done linewise with no
look-ahead. What's done seems something "gather words on a line until
the next one won't fit; add spaces to this line to justify".

Sample: try putting this into an A4 page, 2cm margins, TNR 12pt, fully
justified). You should get 4 lines, of which the third has 3 long words
with large spacing.

Using LM17.3 Mate.  LO v5.0.3.2

Very strange here.  Copy and pasted sample and set margin, text type and
text size as suggested and then did copy + paste.

Text appeared as above.

In turn tried Align left (did as expected), Align right (did as expected) 
Align centre (did as expected) Justify (text remained as pasted).
