Created attachment 103889 [details]
Word 2013 VS LibO 4.3.1

1) Open attachment 103815 [details] in Word 2013 and convert to RTF, else open < https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6qJrVIa0SAlbHNZaDRsYlVpQkU/edit?usp=sharing >
2) Scroll down to page 28
3) See that the bold text 'Connect. This will open a remote'
4) The bold attribute was only set to 'Connect.'

Tested in 4.3.1, 4.2.5, and 3.3.0. It seems that because the period is in bold, its not stopping the bold from continuing. You can see other bold text on the page which has a period following it, but the period in those cases isnt bold.

Thanks Owen for catching that it was fixed in 3.5.7, so that means its a regression. Tested that its broken in 3.6.7.
