WinXP, En-Us 1.9.104. 
1. I have added bibliographical entries to my Tools> Bibliography database.
2. I have later inserted a Bibliography section (Insert > Indexes and tables >
indexes and tables > Type=Bibliography). 
3. Then I added into my document entries that come from that table. When I
update the table, all of the entries from the entrie document show up in the
Bibliography table. All good for now. (well, not really, but I've submitted
other bugs for other stuff)

So now, if i decide that something about some entry is incorrect and I go into
the Database via (1.), if i change the entries of interest, either by modifying
fields or adding some new ones, and then try to get it to update within the
document, i get no response. It seems to me that if I right click on the
database, the click 'update index/table', these new changes should update in
bibliography section of the document.
