- Save an empty document.
- Run MM wizard, at step 3 add an address list, and enable that the document shall contain an address block (attachment 136519 [details] can be used with US English UI without having to match fields).
- Go to step 5 (so the address block is actually inserted), and click Finish.
- Go to Insert -> Field -> More Fields..., locate mail merge fields, and add any of the fields.
- On MM toolbar, click Edit Individual Documents.
=> The address block is empty.

@Mike Kaganski, thanks for fixing this!
I think there were multiple parts to this, and the commit only dealt with one of them. Don't have any repro cases, though.
