Works in LO 4.2.8
Do not work in: 4.4.5, or 5...

The Index/ Table break lines if you use Tab-Stop.

LO 4.2.8
Open the example file with LO 4.2.8 => right mouse click => update index/table
=>Everything's OK!

LO 4.4.5, or 5.0.3
Open the example file with LO 4.2.8 => right mouse click => update index/table
=>completely wrecked

Open the File in LO 4.2.8 again, and everithing is fine.

The Bug is still present in:

Look likely the bug:94318, but it is not the same.

@Don : sorry,I don't understand what you are trying to do.

1) Download the file attached to bug report
2) Opened in LO4242
3) Place cursor in TOC (mouse click positioning), e.g. at end of the line of an entry, press Tab key

4) Error message : "Read only content cannot be changed. No modifications will be accepted."

So, unless your instructions are incomplete, or I am doing something wrong, I'm afraid I can't reproduce your problem. Please provide systematic reproducible instructions.

@Alex, no problem my english may be horrible.

Now I try the same in Version:, the Bug is still present.

Right klick on "Index/Table" => Update Index/Table => The "Index/Table" is broken.

(In reply to DonLocke from comment #3)

@Don : not horrible at all, just an incomplete description :-)

Going back to your original post, you write :

"The Index/ Table break lines if you use Tab-Stop."

What do you mean by this ?
If I try to use the Tab key when the mouse cursor is located within the Index/Table of Contents, I get the error message I mentioned in my first reply.

> Right klick on "Index/Table" => Update Index/Table => The "Index/Table" is
> broken.

Surely, you have to have changed something in the index for that to have any effect ?

Tested on

Build ID: 63150712c6d317d27ce2db16eb94c2f3d7b699f8

When I edit one of the entries, e.g. entry number 2, and insert an extra tab space, then right mouse button click on the TOC and choose "Update TOC", all of the contents of the TOC disappear, leaving only the heading Table of Contents !
Comment 7 Alex Thurgood 2015-11-20 16:39:54 UTC
Same behaviour in 

Build ID: 0a0440ccc0227ad9829de5f46be37cfb6edcf72

Same behaviour in 5022

Irrespective of tha changes I make to the entries in the document, as soon as I click on update, or deactivate the protection of the TOC (in the document provided by the reporter, the TOC is protected), I lose the TOC and am left with just a general TOC heading entry.
Comment 8 Alex Thurgood 2015-11-20 16:45:39 UTC
I can't confirm this particular bug, as I see completely different behaviour, which is equally as buggy. Will check whether there is already a report for this.

@Don : I'm using OSX 10.11.1, which version of OSX are you using ?
