Is this happening on real hardware, or in virt-viewer ?

Comment 3 Martin Krajnak 2017-10-24 16:02:43 UTC
yes, I can reproduce this on my 7.4 with LO libreoffice-

Sorry for inconvenience, I meant both real hardware and VM.

Comment 5 Caolan McNamara 2017-10-25 14:03:25 UTC
I think I see this locally on a RHEL-7 box, but same LibreOffice version on my Fedora 26 box doesn't show the same problem. I wonder where the difference lies.

Comment 6 Martin Krajnak 2017-10-27 07:59:21 UTC
I am not sure, but do you think that bug is not in libreoffice itself ? Is there a possibility that it might be caused by changes in gnome-shell ?

Comment 7 Caolan McNamara 2017-10-27 08:40:09 UTC
possibly, but I'm sure gnome-shell would immediately argue that libreoffice is wrong for being different to other gtk3 apps which don't exhibit the same problem
