	Not hyper-happy with the fix personally :-) it leaves other methods eg.
loadView just below that look decidedly flaky in a similar way.

	Couldn't we package the bibliography component into base ? ;-) or is
that too extreme. Could we fail more cleanly in component_getFactory or
somesuch ?

	Anyhow - it looks sensible and if it fixes the bug that's great, so I
cherry-picked to libreoffice-3-5 :-)
