Yeah, its an awesome mess, the SID_SVX_START block got split up over
three hrc files and it's now super easy to collide ids. I'll add some
comments to the three to suggest only adding new SID_SVX_START entries
to the svx one and when adding a new one to svx check that it's not
already taken by the other two. And then move the three post-svx-split
new editeng entries out of the SID_SVX_START block to the new
post-svx-split SID_EDIT_START block instead. That should presumably fix
the problem.
