Bug description

New documents have no link to a custom template set as "Default template" in impress.

Step to reproduce

1. Create a custom template.
2. Set the custom template as default template.
3. Create a new document (Ctrl + N).


1. The new document has the properties (Styles, page size, etc.) of the custom template.
2. The document Properties > General > Template (is empty).
3. Changes in the custom template are not propagated in the documents created with the template.


Using: File > Manage Templates... > Presentation > Selecting the custom template > Open > New document, works as expected. The new document properties displays the name of the template, and the changes in the template are reflected in the document ("Update styles" window).
