Comment 8 Gerry 2015-07-26 18:19:51 UTC
Hi László, is it possible that there was/is a regression with regard to "footnote numbers in cross-references"? I encounter the same problem on Ubuntu with Version:, which was fixed by your commit in comment 7.

I cross-checked with LO 5.0rc3 on Windows and it seems to be okay there.

Was there a regression in the 4.4.2 line that had been fixed in later 4.4.x versions?
