screenshot of open dialog

Description of problem:
In libreoffice, it's impossible to open HTML documents containing tables with oocalc. This worked nicely with libreoffice-calc-

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create HTML document with a table

cat >test.html <<EOF

2. Click "Open", select the HTML document
3. Select file type "HTML Document - OpenOffice Calc" (see attached sceen shot)
Actual results:
File opens in LO Writer

Expected results:
File opens in LO Calc

Additional info:
Strangely, there are now 2 controls for the file type in the open dialog (there used to be only 1 in earlier versions).

I played around with the settings, but no matter what I did, the document would always open in Writer, not Calc.
Comment 1 Martin Wilck 2012-10-22 10:44:56 EDT
The test file can be opened in Calc from the command line by running "oocalc test.html" directly. So the problem seems to be in the "Open" dialog only.
Comment 2 David Tardon 2012-10-23 02:34:38 EDT
It does not work with the stock file dialog either, so it is not a problem of the Gtk dialog. It works in 3.6 .
Comment 3 Eike Rathke 2012-10-23 05:33:29 EDT
This rings a bell with me, it's fixed in upstream, now let's find the patch..
