Description Andrés Maldonado 2019-07-12 13:43:42 UTC
When navigating through Mail Merge entries, the numbering is incorrect.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In Writer, enable Mail Merge toolbar (View > Toolbars > Mail Merge)
2. Enable Data Sources (View > Data Sources)
3. Open the built-in table 'biblio'
4. Select the 'Identifier' column and drag&drop it into the document

Actual Results:
The counter is set to -1. If I click on the right arrow (Next Mail Merge Entry), the counter changes successively to 1,1,3,3,5,5,...

Expected Results:
The counter should be set to 1. Clicking on the right arrow should change it successively to 2,3,4,5...

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

OpenGL enabled: Yes

Additional Info:
I found that there are two commits that generate a regression:
- cbf3e0d241: tdf#121607 defer other requests until password dialog is dismissed
- 60714a8148: tdf#121606: displaying Mail Merge toolbar shouldn't activate connection

Before cbf3e0d241, the counter starts at 1 and updates as expected: 2,3,4,5,...
After cbf3e0d241 and before 60714a8148: 1,2,2,4,4,6,6,...
After 60714a8148: -1,1,1,3,3,5,5,...

Note: I found those commits while doing bisects with bibisect-linux-64-6.1

Note 2: I still get -1,1,1,3,3,5,5,... on:
