AODL 1.0.2.1 Bugfix Release

These release fixed the following bugs:

- Fixed bug [ 1327809 ] Invalid Cast Exception
Sorry, but the TextDocument throws a Invalid Cast
Exception if you insert a table where one or more cells
contain a List.

- Fixed bug [ 1327820 ] Cell styles run into loop
The cell style names run into a naming loop. So that
all cells of a column get the same names. The app
wouldn't crash and OpenOffice could display the table,
but all cells within a column has the same style
information.
