Writer is adding unwanted tabs to my footnotes

Hi, I just switched to LibreOffice (windows 7) - and it works fine, except that the writer keeps adding tabs/paragraph indent(s) to all my footnotes - which makes them look really unprofessional. If I delete them, they just reappear the next time I open the document. I’ve got a lot of footnotes and so this is a big problem. How can I get LibreOffice to stop doing this?

I added a comment to fdo#51811 - it would be great to see some progress on this one!

@manj_k - good to see the fix! Thanks for noting it here. I did check, and this bug has persisted into It will be great to have it rolled out in the next update (I hope!).
