When selecting cells the insertion point follows the leading corner of the
selection so, for example, when selecting cells down and to the right, the
insertion point is positioned at the bottom right of the selection.  In Excel,
however, the insertion point remains at the starting corner.

Excel's behavior is preferable because users are used to selecting down and to
the right and pasting always goes in this direction.  Keeping the insertion
point at the top left means that the selecting and pasting follow the same

This is a little hard to describe but if you try it you'll see what I mean.

As we are not an Excel clone, this is not a bug but an Feature
request. I set the flags.

Looks like this issue is fixed, so as the original submitter, I suggest you

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
