Good grief, that is a really useful report :-/
I checked with "Ooo 3.0.0 (DE) Multilingual version German UI WIN XP: [OOO300m9
(Build9358)]" and can confirm a curious effect; steps to reproduce:

0. open "split_table_cell_bug.odt"
1. click into red cell C29
2. Menu 'Table - Split Cell - horizontal-2'  <ok>
   expected: cell should be simply divided into 2 cells C29-C30 (or similar)
   actual: it looks as if cell will be divided into 3 parts:
           1 red cell C29 remaining
           1 new white cell C30 (write protected ???)
           1 new red cell C31 what "hurts" space of row 32

Same with "Ooo 3.1 Multilingual version English  UI WIN XP: [DEV300m36 (Build

As a workaround, check "into equal portions" in the "split cell" dialog.

MRU->AMA: as described, click into the red marked cell, split "vertically" into
2 cells -> gives a very strange result. When using "equal portions" it looks as
It looks, as if the splitted cell J28/29 insists confusion.
