Problem description: 

Steps to reproduce:
1. In Libreoffice writer:
2. insert>object>formula
3. type: sin(x) newline coth(x) newline cosech (x) newline sech(x)

Current behavior:sin(x) and coth(x) are formatted correctly cosech and sech are not.

Expected behavior: None of them should be in italic

As a workaround you can type:
sin(x) newline coth(x) newline "cosech"(x) newline "sech"(x)

Still reproducible using Linux Mint 14 x64 with LibreOffice 4.0.0 and master Version (Build ID: 07ee72672e6966dafccf21ca3349e428c2a9dd0).

Kind regards,

To get them automatically detected as formulas they have to be added to the list of formulas (including their inverse functions).
