Description Peter Bieringer 2006-01-06 05:39:20 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de-DE; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
After an unexpected shutdown and restart of OO writer, a message box was displayed, where German umlauts are not displayed well, looks like an encoding problem here.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
0. Switch user language to German, e.g. by editing ~/.i18n
1. Start OO writer, create a document
2. Kill OO writer (e.g. by shutdown)
3. Restart OO writer

Actual Results:  Message box with misdisplayed German umlauts (see attachement)

Expected Results:  German umlauts should be well displayed

Additional info:

Looks like this message box was displayed on rather early OO starting state, because I disabled font alias rendering everywhere (Gnome and OO), but message box fonts are still aliased rendered.

Reproducable, appears that this text is in the wong encoding. It's telling you
there there is a ~/.openoffice.org2.0/.lock file. Logging upstream as
