hi all,

some time ago i noticed that some text fields in writer can only be
expanded properly in the text formatting, and so tried to prevent
expansion of fields in lots of other places (in CWS sw34bf01);
it seems that that went a bit past the mark, and some API methods now
fail if they are invoked before the layout gets around to format the
text field (i.e. the methods return stale cached data).

these fixes should be applied to libreoffice-3-4, libreoffice-3-5, and
perhaps libreoffice-3-5-1 as well:



the following commits add junit tests for the bugs:
