Nasty bug in 6.5.3

by Volker Weber

Ralf has found a nasty bug in Notes 6.5.3 (specific to this version) that destroys document links under certain conditions:

1. The user is editing a document where the current form has sections that are protected.
2. The user has no rights to edit the protected section, while he is saving the document.
3. The protected section contains a rich text field.
4. This rich text field contains document or view links.

If all four conditions are met, Notes 6.5.3 deletes or modifies the $Links field thereby rendering the links in the protected section empty.
