Track changes in document with linked Excel worksheet objects

I have a user that enabled Track Changes in a Word document that contained linked Excel worksheet objects.  She made some edits, updated the links, then closed and saved the document.  No issue.  The next time she opened the document, she was not prompted to update links, and the linked Excel worksheet objects had been reformatted as pictures and all of the links were lost.  She is a saavy Excel/Word user so I make the assumption that she didn't misclick anything to produce this behavior.  Any thoughts/feedback on why this happened would be greatly appreciated.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Probably the reason is similar to the reason described in the articles:

So in general: either changes to the linked objects need to be manually accepted before the document is saved, or track changes should be disabled during the working with the linked/embeded data.
