Under Tools > AutoCorrect Options > Options, turn on URL Recognition for both M and T.

Type the following into a new document:

This URL ( http://url/page#THRESHOLDFORMAT ) will cause soffice to truncate the document at nearly the end of the hash tag, thereby losing loads and loads of useful work.

Save the document in Microsoft Word 2007/2010 XML Format (that is, .docx).

Type Ctrl-W twice to exit LibreOffice.

Open the document.  Observe that the document is now cut off after "...FORMA".  The entire rest of the document is lost and can no longer be edited.  This also loses the page-format settings (page format reverts to A4; page margins are lost; footer setting and content is lost).  Quite possibly, other stuff is lost as well; this is just what I've noticed.

I consider this a Severity 1 issue because huge volumes of data (many, many pages, and many, many hours of careful work) can be lost without warning.
