GetString converts CR to CRLF


Appended file uses following (very basic!) macro :

Sub Main
	doc = ThisComponent
	source = doc.CurrentSelection(0)
	dest = doc.Text.End
End Sub

Selecting entire text and pushing button ought to append a second copy.

But a linefeed is added after each end of paragraph.

Seems that GetString converts CR to CRLF, but SetString does not reverse the process.

Not deadly indeed, but annoying for anybody unaware of the problem.

A possible workaround :

Sub Main
	doc = ThisComponent
	source = doc.CurrentSelection(0)
	dest = doc.Text.End
End Sub
