Lawrence, try to rm -rf ~/.openoffice* and see if it goes better for you 

Comment 6 Lawrence Lim 2005-05-16 06:00:16 UTC
RE Comment #5, unfortunately, no that did not help.

Comment 8 Dan Williams 2005-05-18 19:19:30 UTC
The patch that I submitted upstream from the RHEL4 work _is_ present in current
versions.  (ie, vcl/source/glyphs/gcach_layout.cxx -
IcuLayoutEngine::operator(), RHEL4 patch is

This is most likely related to Bug 157815 such that a fix for one is likely to
solve the other.

Comment 9 Dan Williams 2005-05-18 19:21:39 UTC
Just to complete the previous comment, what I mean is that additional work is
necessary, since it is not the case that our RHEL4 patch was missing or incomplete.

Comment 10 Leon Ho 2005-05-23 04:55:04 UTC
This is a pretty big regression. Is it possible to resolve it in time?

Comment 11 Dan Williams 2005-05-23 13:36:08 UTC
given the fact that I can't even get OOo to _build_ right now (been trying since
Friday morning) due to gij/gcj stuff with berkeleydb, I'm not sure...  I did fix
an issue with Gujarati showing up as all squares due to font/glyph substitution
on Friday, but of course I haven't been able to build that yet.

Comment 14 Lawrence Lim 2005-06-10 03:05:20 UTC
Tested with, bug still exist.

Comment 15 Caolan McNamara 2005-06-13 12:59:12 UTC
I've attached a patch to
which fixes this for me. Will build and make test available.

Comment 16 Lawrence Lim 2005-06-21 05:25:49 UTC
Hi Caolan,
Will a test package be availalble for testing before FC4-updates commence??

Comment 17 Caolan McNamara 2005-06-21 07:53:30 UTC
>= 1.9.109-3 should have this fix. Nothing built for FC4-updates yet, but
rawhide versions are identical.

Comment 18 Lawrence Lim 2005-06-22 01:11:21 UTC
Tested with and, confirm the rendering, cursoring,
delete and backspace issue has been fixed. 

I am a little concern of the height of the characters though, seems to be a bit
lower than english alphabet and as a result, a small portion of the indic
characters gets cut off. Please see attached screenshot.
