When I de-select View > Status Bar, I expect not to see the Status Bar again
until I select View > Status Bar.  I have no use for the Status Bar.  It merely
covers cells that I want to see.  The Bar returns when the file is saved, when
activation changes and sometimes when the file is modified.  I tried assigning a
macro to all those events to hide the bar again with varying results.  The
(de)activation event resulted in the programme crashing.
I apologise if this has already been filed as an issue.  My advanced search
revealed nothing.  A simple search produced tens of thousands of issues on other

confirmed with 680_m156 on WinXP Pro SP2: after pressing return after entering 
something in a cell, the deactivated status bar shows up again

The visibility of the status bar is triggered by calculation when it's
aggregation-function (right end of the bar) is set to some function rather than
"None". Setting it to "None" however does not prevent the visibility triggered
by frame-activation.

This is a long-standing problem in Calc.  Not only does the status bar NOT stay hidden, it may be hidden on one sheet and not in others in a Calc spreadsheet document.
