Are you saying this is all about hidden columns? Because if so, there's still a
bug, at least in the Mac version. I unhid all the columns and rows and it still
bombs out.

It couldn't be a hidden column problem because hidden columns are copied by LO.
If you copy a row across a hidden column, and then paste it atop some virgin
cells, you will see that your copied range includes the hidden column. If you
copy a row of cells, and then paste them across a hidden column, the paste
alters the hidden cells, not just the visible ones. Deleting cell contents
across hidden cells deletes the contents of the hidden cells as well. This is
arguably bad behavior, but it's probably what Excel does so we're stuck with
it.
