[Upstream] [hardy] Writer bookmarks inconsistently sorted

Bug #122919 reported by StephanBeal
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
openoffice.org (Ubuntu)
Won't Fix

Bug Description

Binary package hint: openoffice.org

Document Bookmarks are sorted differently depending on whether they appear in the Navigator (sorted case-sensitively) or in the Insert/Edit Bookmark dialogs (case-insensitively).

Steps to reproduce:

a) In a new document, create bookmarks named "A", "B", and "a".
b) Click on menu Insert --> Bookmark. You will notice that the list is sorted (A, a, B)
c) Open the Navigator view and scroll down to the Bookmarks section. That list is sorted (A,B,a), with capital letters first.

Since bookmarks appear to be the only way to implement intra-document cross-references, my documents often end up with tons of bookmarks (typically one per section or sub-section), and this inconsistency makes it more difficult to locate the bookmarks in the (uncomfortably small) Bookmarks dialogs.
