Description gry 2012-02-02 14:35:50 UTC
 1) Insert a math equation, containing 'a^2 + b^2' 
 2) Exit math editing mode 
 3) Double click the equation, type '= c^2' 
 4) Exit math editing mode 
 5) Click undo

Expected results:
 Equation containing 'a^2+b^2'

Actual results: 
 Writer sets focus to the equation, but it still shows 'a^2+b^2=c^2'

Reproduced with

LibreOffice 3.5.0rc3
Ubuntu 10.04.3 x86
Linux 2.6.32-38-generic Russian UI

I am pretty sure that this is duplicate, but can't find original.

Not a bug for me. Formula is another document inside the text document. The undo/redo works in the formula editor.

Closing as NotABug. Please feel free to reopen if you disagree.
