test case for demonstrating problems with saving list

Problem: when I change list to bullets list and save, it becomes numbered

Steps to reproduce:
0. Open attachment in Writer
1. Select all items of numbered list and change to Bullets using button "Bullets On/Off" on toolbar or by press Shift-F12. List becomes bulletted.
2. Save
3. File->Reload
Expected: list remains bulletted
Actually: list becomes numbered

Reproduced in 3.4.2 on Windows XP 32 bit and in 3.6.3 on RFR 17 64 bit

Observation: msWord 2007 opens list as numbered. Therefore I guess that problem appears during saving. Calligra Words and Ocular also opens as numbered.

Workaround: use Format->Bullets and numbering for changing format of list

repro 7.2+.
A named list (L1) becomes an automatic list (right?) when changing to bullets. So it seems like export doesn't really recognize that change.

I was not able to reproduce this with a brand new document either (comment 6)
