Description of problem:
Openning files with openoffice writer which contains character "&" in name causes crash of gnome-panel. Opening the same file with for example gedit causes no problem.
Gnome-panel restarts corectly only after deleting file ".recently-used".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create file with "&" in name (for example "a&b.txt")
2. open it with openoffice writer
Actual Results: gnome-panel crash
(name of opened file in ".recently-used" contains "&" instead of "%26")
Expected Results: no crash
(name of opened file in ".recently-used" contains "%26")
So, there are two bugs at play here.
1) openoffice should be escaping amperstands correctly.
2) the panel shouldn't crash when it encounters an invalid xml file.
2 doesn't happen anymore, so i'm going to close this bug. If 1 still happens
can you file a new report? thanks.
