Principle of least surprise

Dunno whether this is a bug or a design decision or what, but it's a 
pretty nasty breach of the principle ...

Why, when I click on a cell, does calc NOT select the clicked cell?

Okay, I know the answer - it's a hyperlink. BUT.

I was editing a csv, I've got a column of email addresses, and some of 
them have been hyperlinked, some of them haven't. I don't want 
hyperlinks, I didn't ask for hyperlinks, and I can't see any way of 
easily removing them!

Okay, I know I can be a moaner but the people who will be bitten by this 
are the people who least know how to get out of it. I've probably 
damaged my spreadsheet because when I clicked on the cell I wanted to 
edit, it's left the highlight on the PREVIOUS cell and I've trashed that 
by mistake. NOT nice.
