Problem description: 
When I have unchecked the option of 'object boundaries' in 'Options\LibreOffice\Appearance', those boundaries still show.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Insert an object, for example, a formula;
2. Uncheck the option of 'object boundaries' in 'Options\LibreOffice\Appearance'

Current behavior:
The boundaries are still there.

Expected behavior:
The boundaries should be hidden.
Operating System: Windows XP
Version: release

I could reproduce this behavior in, and in the master too.

Operating system: Windows 7

We've noticed if you turn off the 'text boundaries' , it's working.

When deactivating Tools > Options > Application Colors > Text Boundaries, then the boundaries of formulas are gone.

Therefore I close this bug as WORKSFORME despite I tested it on Linux. I assume that Windows won't work in a different way.
