tdf#130555: Prevent negative aSelection.Min()
...which would violate the the preconditions of the later call to maText.remove. When BreakIteratorImpl::previousWord (i18npool/source/breakiterator/breakiteratorImpl.cxx) is called to e.g. move back over a single space at the start of the text, at least for an en-US locale it will fall through to the call to BreakIterator_Unicode::previousWord (i18npool/source/breakiterator/breakiterator_unicode.cxx) at the bottom of the function. That in turn calls icu::BreakIterator::preceding, which is documented (workdir/UnpackedTarball/icu/source/common/unicode/brkiter.h) to return icu::BreakIterator::DONE (i.e., -1, see workdir/UnpackedTarball/icu/source/common/unicode/brkiter.h) in that case, which causes BreakIterator_Unicode::previousWord to return a Boundary with startPos == endPos == -1. The documentation of UNO method css.i18n.XBreakIterator::previousWord (offapi/com/sun/star/i18n/XBreakIterator.idl) is silent about the expected return value in such a case. But lets assume that returning such a [-1..-1] Boundary is as intended, and locally address this case in Edit::ImplDelete, making aSelection start at the start of the text.
