Sample mml file to test

When using Import Formula feature, if some formula is already entered in the editor, importing a MathML file first copies the current formula, and then pastes the MathML content. This makes the preceeding formula to show twice.

1. Open Math
2. Enter the following: "1 <ENTER> newline <ENTER>", put the caret after the last <ENTER>.
3. Menu Tools -> Import Formula -> MathML 1.01 -> select some .mml file (attached is a sample mml file created from an example from mathjax site)

Expected: there should be symbol One followed by newline followed by the newly imported formula: "1 <ENTER> newline <ENTER> <Imported formula>"
Actual result: two lines with ones before the formula: "1 <ENTER> newline <ENTER> 1 <ENTER> newline <ENTER> <Imported formula>"

This does not happen when importing a .odf formula.

I can reproduce this with latest master, and with Linux, so putting this as platform -> All.
