open  .pbm .pct .pgm .ppm files has the same problem.
Comment 2 Caolan McNamara 2008-11-03 05:33:06 EST
They will open from "soffice.bin" in all cases. But not from oodraw when there are no windows already open. And they will if there is any window already open.

Happens in all version including 3.0 in F-10. Fixing for a RHEL-5 makes sense to me, but not for a OOo2 tech preview in RHEL-4.
