Works fine here. Maybe it's a configuration problem? Move ~/.openoffice.org away and try again.

Comment 2 Horst H. von Brand 2010-07-02 00:30:25 UTC
Yep, that fixed it. Sorry for the noise.

BTW, I don't remember messing with OOo's configuration _at all_.

Comment 3 Horst H. von Brand 2010-07-19 17:35:49 UTC
It came back... I configured oocalc to use Spanish/Chile, and now it again gets stuck at the top of the screen.

Comment 4 Caolan McNamara 2010-07-20 11:21:26 UTC
I don't have any such problems myself with stock metacity. Are you using something else, or are desktop effects enabled, i.e. compiz

Comment 5 Horst H. von Brand 2010-07-23 14:13:53 UTC
I've got Gnome on Openbox.

But with the latest round of OOo updates (e.g. openoffice.org-calc-3.3.0-1.3.fc14.x86_64) it seems to have gone away. Just updating to 3.3.0-1.5.fc14 right now...

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.

Logged in with openbox on x86_64 F-14, played with calc, didn't see any problems. Does this still happen for you ?

Its possible I guess that there's a problem with openbox with a -1 x,y value which can happen IIRC as default locations for some windows, but blowing away my config to return to defaults doesn't show any problems either.
