Actually the bug is exactly as described. Testing with LibreOffice 4.0.2 rc1

The problem is in interpreting an incomplete hyper link.

1) If the complete hyper link is entered Sheet 2.A2 it becomes #Sheet 2.A2
And movement to that sheet and cell is reliable.

2) If you insert the hyperlink without the cell reference, e.g. #Sheet 2, 
it takes you that sheet but looks to retain the last cell referenced, i.e.
the landing cell is erratic.

3) And if as Tanstaafl reports in  fdo#62289
<>   even if you use the
GUI and select the numbers only page name, e.g. 3 so hyperlink is #3 ,the
link is interpreted incorrectly and you remain on the same page--and
apparently in that numbered row.

So there is definitely an issue with the Target in Document GUI picker
allowing an incomplete hyper link. Or equally an inconsistent
parser/handling logic for incomplete hyperlink targets--would think that
absent a complete hyperlink target, the parser should identify the sheet and
default to a consistent cell--A1 I would imagine.
