getElementNames method of css.ui.UICategoryDescription returns list of module names but it returns some empty strings in it.

Sub UICategoryDescription
  cd = CreateUnoService("")
  names = cd.getElementNames()
  txt = ""
  for i = 0 to ubound(names) step 1
    txt =  txt & "'" & names(i) & "'" & chr(10)
  msgbox txt
End Sub has the same problem.

Patch to fix this problem, increment n in the while loop

This problem is happen because n is not incremented in the while loop to fill sequence with elements.
The above basic code can be used to verify this patch.
