Note that this may happen in OpenOffice too: users often open a bug 
report and attach a sample file to better describe the bug, and they 
might well forget to check that they have permission to contribute the file.

We will definitely keep this in mind for OpenOffice too, and we'll 
double-check if we move a file from Bugzilla to SVN (we currently don't 
do it). I doubt we will ever include a test document into a release, but 
in that case we'll be very careful too.
