Description Oron Peled 2008-05-10 07:09:25 EDT
Description of problem:

1. This is a regression in .doc filters that makes OO.o *unusable* for
2. The regression was introduced into OO.o-2.4.0, it is fixed for 2.4.1:
3. Because it was handled very late (April), F9 carries an unfixed
   version. Distro maintainers tried to handle it themselves:

     * Ubuntu, Hardy, fixed:
     * Mandrake, fixed according to user reports.
4. The easiest fix (IMO) is just pulling out the (very small) offending

This affects binary .doc import for digits in CTL languages where they are
always converted, where the desire was to do it just for Arabic languages.

Will be in >= openoffice_org-2.4.0-12.9.fc9
