tdf#105069, store the VBA module info for new modules as well
This was never a problem until we started to export the VBA stream
instead of just writing back the imported stream.

Comment 5 tagezi 2017-11-21 09:39:50 UTC
I done it to 6.0. And I think It enough, because It usual cannot touch real users.
