This is a very old issue. See this:




Is there any chance that could it be addressed by LibreOffice?

Radek, could you have a look at this one? If it can be turned into an easy hack, could you please add some code pointers?

Reproducible with LO (Win 8.1)

For me this is actually a bug, therefore I changed it.

@Radek: Should we maybe put you out of "Assigned to" in case anybody else would maybe like to take it or do you want to keep it?
