I used to run into this when I was using Word for writing manuals. As I
recall, the trouble is that when you insert new text right before the text
you're referencing, Word considers the new text part of the reference. For
instance, if I was referencing a heading that read "Getting Started" and
later inserted a page break before the G, Word would consider the page break
to be part of the references text.

The solution: go to the end of the previous paragraph, press Enter, and then
insert the new text. Bada bing.
