Bibisected to the following range using repo bibisect-43all:

Since the range is huge, between 2011-12-13 and 2013-02-06 (these are two consecutive commits in the bibisect repo), thus not useful, I'm marking this as notBibisectable.

I am not sure wether this is a bug or not. The Text "2" is underlined using Strg+U. After opening the hyperlink dialog and applying the new text, any text style will be deleted. For instance, the same happens with any other style (bold, italic, strike through etc.)
