Issue introduced in range 8456d83ed928c9c14b833393d5e15f64e394a3b1..f4b8affe8f4bee197bf5ffb73d52fafee3e904db
Comment 5 Xisco Faulí 2016-08-31 11:45:47 UTC
Regression introduced by aa0d0536a444fb26d9e570bd6bf6c1bdc3596cf3. Reverting the code in extensions/source/bibliography/toolbar.cxx
and extensions/source/bibliography/toolbar.hxx fixes the problem.

@Noel: Could you please take a look at it?
