I inserted 4 jpg pictures into the document, but when I try to select the four pictures by holding down the shift key and clickin on the second picture, the cursor jump to the begining of the document and select a totally different picture. Any suggestion?

The feature of adding a picture to the selection using shift+click is not implemented, see issue 17860.

Grouping of images is not implemented for Writer, see issue 28125 or the more general request in issue 30523.

As workaround, when you need to group pictures, you can put them together into one frame and anchor each of them to the frame.

So there remains the problem, that not the picture is selected where you click, but a different one at the first page of the document. Version OOo32 reacts with deselecting, if you use the unsupported shift-click. Version OOo33 has already the faulty selection.

I take this issue for this defect and change the subject accordingly.

Additional info:
(a) not inevitably the first picture will be selected, might be an other one
    or a object
(b) Relation to "Bug 124213 - Impossible to select text row part with
    multiple raster graphics (anchored as character) by shift + click" 
    will have to be checked
