Start a new spreadsheet and use the border toolbar button to surround a cell
with borders on all sides. Go to another application and copy some text. Paste
this text into the bordered cell. All borders go away.

To me, pasting of plain text should be handled as unformatted text and follow
the formatting of the existing cell, including borders.

CTRL+V is a paste operation which means by default the complete content of the
clipboard is pasted. The format used in this case is formatted text, so all
formatting information in the cell is lost intentionally.

To avoid this, use the Paste Special dialog, select the things you want to paste
and select Add as the Operation to use.
