The IME Status window should float on top of OpenOffice, but not
on top of other applications. This feature is new in 1.1.2.
Can you please try openoffice.org-1.1.2-6? This openoffice.org status
should be gone now and replaced by gtk+ IM status style as OOo is gtk+
enabled from 1.1.2-5.
Confirmed resolved in 1.1.2-6.
I have the same problem with OOo 1.1.3 as shipped in FC3 or RHEL4
Confirmed with OOo 1.1.3 FC3
