I suppose you could argue that this is not a bug, but it's a serious usability issue.

1) Create a new chart in Calc.
2) Double-click on it to edit something.
3) While still editing the chart, right-click on a blank area
4) Copy (right-click menu or CTRL+C)
5) Paste somewhere.
6) Observe that only the "Chart Area" (usually blank) is pasted.

At first I thought Calc's copy feature was broken.  It took me several tries to figure out what was actually happening.  
I don't think a non-technical user would ever figure this out.  I can think of no use case for copying the chart area, 
but this behavior has disrupted my work repeatedly.
