If a formula in Writer table references a cell in another table, and that other table is renamed, then the reference in formula isn't updated.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new Writer document.
2. Add a table (automatically named like "Table1").
3. In cell A1, put value 1.
4. Add another table below.
5. In the second table's A1, press F2 and enter formula "=<Table1.A1>".
6. Rename Table1 to Table11.
Expected: formula in second table now is "=<Table11.A1>".
Actual: the formula stays "=<Table1.A1>", value is "** Expression is faulty **".
This is inconsistent with Writer's behavior when the referred table's rows/columns are deleted/inserted. In this latter case, the formulas in other tables are automatically update their external cell references.

I don't understand, why this is an enhancement. If you recieve an error message it is clearly a bug. Mike, feel free to change it back to enhancement with a short reasoning, if you disagree.
