Create a numbered or bulleted list at the top of a new word processing document.
(E.g. type "1." space, some text, and Enter). If you then try to move the first
line of the list down ... for example, to make space for a title for the list,
you cannot put the cursor in front of the number or bullet in order to press
"Enter" and create the new line.

Related to this, if you press "Ctl-A" in order to select all text, it selects
all the numbers in the list except the first, at the top of the page.

It is, therefore, important that a user be able to place the cursor in front of,
but on the same line as, a number or bullet.

(The same problem probably affects OOo on other operationg systems, but I cannot
confirm that).

Thank you for using and supporting OOo.

The workaround is to:

1  Go to the first line on the page.  
   Make sure the cursor is right after the numbered bullet.
2  Press enter.
3  Remove the first line on the page.

This technique is based on the technique listed in the Help files for 
inserting a paragraph before a table at the top of the page.

If you like, you can change this to an enhancement request.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
