I'm not sure whether or not this is a bug, but it is possible to paste
buttons and presumably other controls onto protected sheets, obscuring
the original content (although the cell data can not be changed).

  1. Create a button on one sheet
     Here is how:
      View->Toolsbars->Form Controls (check on)
      Click DesignModeOnOff (the second one) to put Design Mode on.
      Click the PushButton icon.  Cursor changes to cross-hairs.
      Use the mouse to draw a button outline on the sheet.
  2. Create a new sheet. 
  3. Tools->ProtectDocument->Sheet; enable protection (no password necessary)
  4. Go back to the first sheet.  Turn on DesignMode if it is not still on. 
     Select the button and Control-C to copy it onto the clipboard.
  5. Go to the new, protected sheet.  Control-V pastes the button onto it.
