screenshot showing current behaviour

Problem description: 
If I create a line across the page then press return, the line is repeated and is below the text, not above it

Steps to reproduce:
1. Start a new writer document
2. Type "line1" + return
3. Type "---" + return
4. Type "line2" + return

Current behavior:
Two lines are drawn under "line2"

Expected behavior:
One line is drawn above "line2"
Comment 1 Tim Lloyd 2014-10-06 04:44:43 UTC
confirmed Fedora 21

Pressing ENTER anywhere on "line2" causes the line underneath to be duplicated.
Comment 2 ign_christian 2014-10-06 05:08:56 UTC
Also reproduced with LO portable - Win7 x86

Not reproduced with LO portable,
