In sc/source/ui/vba/vbawindow.cxx, in the function ScVbaWindow::getCaption(), we have:
> static const char sCrud = " - OpenOffice.org Calc";
which obviously won't have the intended effect. This should be changed to use the actual product name of the LO build instead.
Or then maybe what the code attempts to do there is completely unnecessary anyway, and it is perfectly fine to just have the Caption property return the whole window title. After all, that is what the code has done since LibreOffice's first release.

Dear Tor Lillqvist,
To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not
appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!
Note that I personally have zero interest in that part of the code any longer. Also, to really check what effect this has one would need a test program in Visual Basic, to run against LibreOffice before and after the patch, and compare to how Excel behaves. I don't have any such environment any longer. I almost feel like resolving this as WONTFIX.
(And yes, I do mean Visual Basic, the thing that has been dead for ages. Not VBA.)
