Default libreoffice 3.5.2.2 paste special fails

This issue seems to have come up with the latest update to 3.5.2.2. I
cut rows from one doc then want to paste them into another and use
paste special to shift rows down. Howerver, paste special doesn't
appear in the context menu (it used to in the previous version), and
if i choose it from the Edit menu, nothing happens.

Any idea how to troubleshoot this? Any sense in trying rm -fr ~/.libreoffice?

System is mostly amd64, with a few ~amd64 (eg firefox, not libreoffice)
proxy ~ # emerge -pv libreoffice
These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

always worth a try - but just rename the old directory first and then
move it back if thats not the problem.

mv ~/.libreoffice ~/.libreoffice-orig didnt help. Any other ideas?

Add a brand new user and try in the new environment in case its a
problem with the existing desktop environment.

There are just too many variables in this sort of vague "doesn't work"
scenario so all you can do is start eliminating outside
influences/suspects. Seems no one else has jumped in saying they suffer
from this too so its something unique to you - I am using 3.5.2 (just
upgraded) and its fine.

Also, just in case you used an existing document, try with something new
and created by yourself just to test this.

(I may be guilty of repeating myself here, but I hope not.)

I found some irritating regressions in the chart module in 3.5.* so I
asked about it on a libreoffice mailing list. The one response I got
recommended that I reinstall 3.4.* because a lot of people are having
problems with 3.5.*

So that's what I did. Not a very satisfying fix, though.
