It's a known limitation, and only happens when you copy&paste between
two different instances of libreoffice (or openoffice for that
matter).  In reality this is not a huge concern since most users don't
run two different versions of libreoffice (or openoffice) much less
copy&paste stuff between them.  If you copy&paste using the same
version of libreoffice this won't happen.
