file, which will loose some text after editing
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open attached template. You'll already see corruption, there will be "Адрес e-mail: r.ru" insntead of "Адрес e-mail: mobilmir.ru" on the 3rd line
2. Try to edit the line, for example, append "mobilmi" before "r.ru", or even just remove text after input field till end of the line.
3. Save the file and open it again.
Several characters (7 it seems) after input field are lost
text stays intact

original file from 2012-11-13, which was last ok
by "open" I mean template edition, not creating new document based on one.
My command line for "open" is:
"C:\Program Files\LibreOffice 4\program\swriter.exe" -o "D:\Users\LogicDaemon\Documents\Google Drive\IT\свои\Спецификации\Шаблоны\Для новых пользователей\учётная запись почты.ott"
Looks very related to https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=124178
That fix is ported to LibreOffice to (see commit http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=91f509fda9a04670e0752a214188be87bce1f2ac)
Currently our daily-builds are broken. When they are back up and running we might check this using latest version which includes this fix.
@Caolan: please see Comment 3. Will it be 'dangerous' to backport that commit to LibreOffice 4.2-branch anyway? Thanks in advance for your time.
Oliver-Rainer Wittmann committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "libreoffice-4-2":
Resolves: fdo#74780 #i124178# correct export of User Variable Input Fields
It will be available in LibreOffice 4.2.1.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at

Visual artifacts from 220.127.116.11
I've tried 18.104.22.168 (from http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/pre-releases/win/x86/LibreOffice_22.214.171.124_Win_x86.msi) and not only corrupts the text, it adds visual artifacts after input fields (letters Axu).
They're clearly visible on screenshot fragment.

Thanks for testing.
Lets mark this as REOPENED.
@Anton: are those artifacts reproducible with every template containing input fields?
No issue with libo-42~2014-02-14_09.26.26_LibreOfficeDev_184.108.40.206.0_Win_x86.msi, templates seem to be working well.
@Jorendc When opening other templates created with previous (before 4.2) LO versions, same problems appear. But when I create a new one, this problem does not reproduce.
Yet other problems appear, Gonna go create new bug.
