Could you provide screenshot for each step?

This is not a bug, it is a feature.

To draw multiple objects of the same type, double-click the icon.
To revert to normal mode after creating, click in an area of the document containing no objects, click the Select icon or press the ESC key.

See OpenOffice-Help "Draw objects - adding/editing/copying"
