Description of problem:
BITXOR behaves the same as BITOR

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

Caolan, what does this break, and in what way is this a blocker, that we should delay the release for?

Comment 2 Caolan McNamara 2009-10-22 09:21:59 UTC
It breaks openoffice.org base, 
e.g. open an openoffice.org database, open a table that has an ID column.  Make a
column called "BID".  Go to Tools-SQL and run:
update "Events" set BID = BITXOR(ID, 1)
This will behave as:
update "Events" set BID = BITOR(ID, 1)
i.e. BITXOR incorrectly behaves as BITOR

Without the fix we're out of sync with vanilla OpenOffice.org 3.1.1. The patch is safe and was logged two months ago here in order to be possible to meet the blocker target easily

http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1763415 has the patches.  Please test and if good, request tagging for F12.
