Error messages instead of images

If I insert more than two remotely linked images into a Writer document it leads to some form of "corruption" of two of these images (error messages are displayed instead of the images).

Steps to reproduce:
1) Start Writer (a new document is created).
2) Use from the menu bar: Insert -> Image... (a dialog opens).
3) Check the "Link" checkbox, write an existing image URL into the file name text field and press "Open".
4) Press the "Keep link" in the confirmation dialog.
5) Click to another position in the document.
6) Repeat the steps 2 - 5 twice again.

Expected result:
There are three images in the document.

Current result:
There is only one valid image. Instead of the two other images there are only two frames where URLs and "Read-Error" texts are displayed alternately. In some occasions, all images are correctly displayed first but after moving the view it changes to the state described before.

The same applies for the situation where these images are inserted directly into the document (not linked) and they are subsequently changed to the linked versions (by specifying their URLs in image context dialogs).

Hi, Lukas.

Looks like we're having trouble reproducing your problem. What version of Windows are you using with LibreOffice? Do you see the same problem on a different computer?

Status -> NEEDINFO

(After you provide feedback, please change status back to UNCONFIRMED. thanks!)

the problem occurs on all of my computers with various systems:

- Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit
- Windows 7 Professional 64bit
- Kubuntu 14.10 64bit

I tested first three images from this webpage:

But it worked the same way also for other images both from this page and from any others I tested.

@Lukas, *,

Confirming, but setting as duplicate of bug 88935. Have attached a test document of this linked image use case there.
