ODT document with a table with one cell locked to illustrate the behaviour. Cell contents  denote which cell it is for clarity.

When placing the cursor in a protected cell in a Writer table, an error message is displayed ONLY if you actually type a character on the keyboard.

When placing the cursor in the protected cell, NO error message is displayed when: 
- Pasting text from the clipboard
- Pressing [Enter]
- Pressing [Backspace]

For consistency, IMHO the above cases should also trigger the display of the error message that you get when you type something into the protected cell.

I noticed that cutting/pasting is disabled from the “Edit”-menu when you are inside a protected cell, but nevertheless people use the [CTRL]+[V] shortcut, not explicitly seeing the disability to paste.

As described. This is surprising behavior, because in Calc in all those cases a warning is shown.
