      Description

      When uploading a new version there is no restriction for the file format. As a result, new version of the file fails to open e.g. in MS Office.

      STR:
      1. Open document library and upload .docx;
      2. Click "Upload New version" -> files with all extensions are available to be open;
      3. Choose .doc file and click "Open" -> New version is uploaded, preview is changed;
      4. Now try to open the file through 'Edit in MS Office'.

      Exp. result: the document should be open for editing;
      Act.result: 'Word cannot open the file because the file format does not match the file extension'.

      Note: the issue is not reproduced for Alfresco Enterprise 4.1.3, because it puts a restriction on a file format to be chosen (e.g. only docx files are availabe to be open when uploading new version for docx).

      The issue was found during exploratory testing.
