Reproduced loss of data in 4.4 rc2, but not in 4.5 alpha.

Jaise: if you want to try with 4.5 (it doesn't replace your existing install, but installs parallel), you can get it here: http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/Win-x86@62-TDF/

Already seen in the oldest commit of Linux 43all bibisect repo.

Note for reproducers: it is important to modify the link first to point to the correct path. You can break the link immediately afterwards in the link editing dialog.
