it turned out that in this particular document the problem was that the 
first redline that was created was already wrong, which is fixed with 
commit 954c158acb87eb0385c51fdfff38fff84f154051 "sw: WW8: fix 
crashtesting asserts on fdo45983-1.doc export to ODT" - but in general 
the splitting of delete redlines remains a bad idea.
