New SC document save it to source.ods, file2.xls.
Edit the file2.xls, import some sheet from source.ods as link to file2.xls.

Save the file2.xls, then reload file2.xls.

The link broken.

I reproduced this issue in OOo 3.3 and OOo 3.1

--> no AOO 3.4 release blocker from my point view.

Every once in a while something similar happens to me when I first open my master file; it has nothing to do with reloading the file. It doesn't happen every time I open the file and I can't reproduce the problem at will.

The sheet name is missing from the links to one or more subordinate files. The entire path and cell/range reference are intact, but the sheet name is missing. Since I have multiple links to each subordinate file, it takes me a lot of time to recreate them each time it happens. For me, this is a major headache.
