https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=103967#c11 gives a hint on how to fix it, however, more works needs to be done as it would break the unittest for bug 117923. I gave a try at https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/73834/ but it doesn't fix the root cause, it just makes the unitests pass.

In order to easily test for this regression with linux bibisect-44max:

WW8PLCFMan::AdjustEnds deeply flawed concept wrt change tracking
The whole idea of clipping the char attributes to before the cr that word uses
as the end of para marker is flawed from especially the perspective of
redlining which is a char property in word.

If the redline encompasses the newline in order to state that it is deleted,
then if the prop is clipped to before that newline then the end-of-para doesn't
get marked as deleted

For now just remove the character attributes clipping from here to be as
conservative as possible.

Hopefully the ordering of processing start pap before start chp and end chp
before end pap and the other million improvements in the parser that came about
after AdjustEnds was created avoids whatever problems were trying to be worked
around here.

Who would want their name on that patch :-)
We'd probably just get another meta-bug :-(
