Example file containing broken references.

There seems to be something wrong with the bibliography reference handling when importing .docx file containing bibliography entries created with Reference Manager software.

The references seem to be imported as bookmarks named as _Toc[serial] and the "References" section itself is empty.

LibreOffice cannot currently handle Word bibliography objects, though this should be possible with a full implementation of ODF 1.2.
