[Bug 1389858] Re: Libreoffice calc 4.2.7 not sorting right


The 4.2.7-0ubuntu1 package should now satisfy the fdo#81633 (Sorting
shouldn't always automatically adjust references.) users, while the
fdo#81309 (Sorting should automatically adjust references.) need to
enable the UpdateReferenceOnSort option. In earlier versions of
LibreOffice 4.2.x released in trusty, depending on document and formula
the behaviour was inconsistent. Thus no matter which consistent
behaviour we implement as default, one of the above groups of users will
see it as a regression while the other group will see it as a bugfix.
