Word import: cross-references not hyperlinked

I imported a Word document into a Confluence 4.0 space using the Documentation theme, splitting topics down to the fourth level. Internal cross-reference hyperlinks (i.e. field codes with name=Ref, Field properties=<bookmark name>, "Hyperlink to paragraph" checked) are not being converted to links.

If http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONFKB/Office+Connector+Limitations+and+Known+Issues mentions this I can't find it. Is this a known issue? Is there a workaround?

Same thing happening in 4.0.3.

hear hear. Assigning "confluence labels" based on keywords in word woudl be nice too :)

This should work. Can you please file a bug and attach your word document to the issue?

This is still happening in 4.3.7.

This is still happening in 5.3.4.
