Description Dmitry 2017-02-20 14:54:22 UTC
Really, very strange thing.

Software:
* Debian 8.6;
* MATE 1.8.1 (prev. Gnome 2) desktop;
* NetBeans 8.1.
* UTF-8 system charset.

Now bug.
1) Open Libreoffice Writer and NetBeans
2) Type some text in Writer.
3) Copy text or its part in Writer.
4) Switch to NetBeans, and return back (by ALT+TAB or by MOUSE)
5) Bookmark appears! Looks like "__DdeLink__3155_2031347635".

This bug also appears when I switch between MATE's desktops by "CTRL+ALT+[LEFT|RIGHT]", when NetBeans is on one desktop, Write on another.

Another reproducing:
1) Open Libreoffice Writer and NetBeans
2) Put NetBeans on the desktop #2, open text editor (gedit) on the same desktop and switch to it. Now gedit hide NetBeans.
3) Go back to desktop #1, type some text in Writer.
4) Copy text or its part in Writer.
5) Switch to desktop #2 (on gedit) and return back -- NOTHING.
6) Switch to desktop #2 on gedit, switch to NetBeans (by ALT+TAB or by MOUSE) and return back -- same bug.
7) You can also don't switch to NetBeans exactly, just minimize gedit, NetBeans will become ahead, and bug will appear.

I thought this bug have something common with enabled JVM, but it's disabling did not help.
Sometimes I often switch from Writer to NetBeans, and bookmarks appears and appears. And there is no way to delete them all (it'll be fine to have this feature!).
There are NO hot keys in NetBeans or Writer for "ALT+TAB". System hot key (MATE's) was not changed.
Any other text editor -- gedit, browsers (firefox, chrome), calc, another Writer document does not effect.
I suppose, the reason is that NetBeans and Libreoffice Writer both uses the root of /tmp dir.

Yes, Indeed it's a strange thing.
Could you please try to reproduce it with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ ?
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version.

Bug still exists.
Comment 3 Dmitry 2017-02-22 14:30:04 UTC
Little addition.
When __DdeLink_... appears I can press CTRL+Z, and it will disappear.

Holy guacamole, you are right! I tried with Ubuntu 16.10 and Netbeans 8.1.
Having the Navigator visible in the sidebar one will immediately see the bookmark.
