After toying around for quite some time, I found the reason (which is
indeed connected to #229012). The selection created by #229012 is more
"persistent" than a normal selection. I.e. when such a selection exists,
and I select more cells, the two selections are combined (as if I had
pressed the Ctrl key while selecting). Of course, it is easy to
unintentionally create non-rectangular selections in this way, which OOo
refuses to copy to the clipboard. :-|

In short: This is a duplicate. Please upload a fixed OOo soon, in this
state the program is annoying to use, and certainly shouldn't get
anywhere near Sarge.
