Lawrence, try to rm -rf ~/.openoffice* and see if it goes better for you 
Comment 6 Lawrence Lim 2005-05-16 02:00:16 EDT
RE Comment #5, unfortunately, no that did not help.
Comment 8 Dan Williams 2005-05-18 15:19:30 EDT
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 15:21:39 EDT
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 00:55:04 EDT
This is a pretty big regression. Is it possible to resolve it in time?
Comment 11 Dan Williams 2005-05-23 09:36:08 EDT
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 2005-06-09 23:05:20 EDT
Tested with openoffice.org-1.9.108-1, bug still exist.
Comment 15 Caolan McNamara 2005-06-13 08:59:12 EDT
I've attached a patch to http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=50571
which fixes this for me. Will build and make test available.
Comment 16 Lawrence Lim 2005-06-21 01:25:49 EDT
Hi Caolan,
Will a test package be availalble for testing before FC4-updates commence??
Comment 17 Caolan McNamara 2005-06-21 03:53:30 EDT
>= 1.9.109-3 should have this fix. Nothing built for FC4-updates yet, but
rawhide versions are identical.
Comment 18 Lawrence Lim 2005-06-21 21:11:21 EDT
Tested with openoffice.org-writer-1.9.109-5.1.0.fc4 and
openoffice.org-impress-1.9.109-5.1.0.fc4, 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.
