screenshot of mail merge preview on Linux

In Writer in Mail merge wizard on "step 5. Adjust layout" preview is shown with toolbars from Writer. It is no need to show them there.

Steps to reproduce:
0. Start Writer with any document
1. Do Tools - Mail Merge wizard
2. If step 5 is grayed, then click step 3, create address list with random items,and do all steps inside of this step. Step 5 then becomes available.
3. Clic step 5. There is preview of letter, with toolbars of Writer if they was previously enabled.

This was reproduced on LibO 3.4.rc1 on Mandriva 64 bit and Windows XP 32 bit

PS: Window of wizard can not be resized and is so small that is no much use of preview. Previev is so small that it is hard to understand there something.

[Reproducible] with "LibreOffice 3.4.0RC2  – WIN7  Home Premium  (64bit) English UI [OOO340m1 (Build:12)]"

In reporter's step 3 I get wizard's step 5 active with checking "This document should contain a salutation" in Wizard step 4

With a Daily Build nearby "LibreOffice 3.4.1RC1  - WIN7  Home Premium (64bit) German UI [OOO340m1 (Build:101)]" I also see that when I switch off/on preview of Menu "Insert > Indexes >  TOC". May be all dialogs with that particular kind of preview (until  now I did not find additional ones) are affected?

Please feel free to reassign if it’s not your area
