Just checked it with Unicode chart, U+002A it looks fine as per http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U0000.pdf

Comment 6 Pravin Satpute 2012-02-09 18:34:15 UTC
is this still happening with F16?
Lohit telugu does not have latin characters, thats why it is coming from default system Latin font.

yes lohit telugu is ok with English, but now * shape for other languages changed, when you compare with screenshot of Fedora 15 Libreoffice. I am not sure, what changed, but when selecting font selection is Lohit-* (respective language) (Red Mark in comment #7 screenshot.
