Confirmed on openSUSE Tumbleweed with beta 1!

hello Alex,
Do you reproduce it with LibreOffice 6.1 beta2 from https://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/pre-releases/? What about LibreOffice ?

Hello all,

@arnaud: Do you think you could dig into this bug ?

I'm completely overloaded right now to investigate this.

Best regards,

@Alex Arnaud : could you please check if my patch is improving the situation, it seems I have some trouble with Orca and can't check by myself.
