Description of problem:
In libreoffice 22.214.171.124, it's impossible to open HTML documents containing tables with oocalc. This worked nicely with libreoffice-calc-126.96.36.199-1.fc16.x86_64.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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)
File opens in LO Writer
File opens in LO Calc
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.
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.
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 .
This rings a bell with me, it's fixed in upstream, now let's find the patch..
Apparently http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=552bebe6fa27fa58d07d87283a4b24e6052ab3d4 for https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=45084 fixed this.
