In a fresh build of the libreoffice-3-3 branch with --with-distro=NovellWin32, the Help:About dialog has zero width and is thus fairly useless and hard to close. Most likely caused by the layout patches.
AFAIK, the about dialog is not layouted.
It might be somehow related to the Novell branding.
Fridrich, please have a look.
Yep, it seems that the width of the Help:About dialog is set from the width of the "about" bitmap image (loaded using Application::LoadBrandBitmap ("about", aBitmap)), and apparently in my --with-distro=NovellWin32 builds that image is then nonexistent or something, with no fallback, resulting in a zero-sized bitmap.
I wonder if this is just a problem in my build environment, or if others would see this too if they tried building --with-distro=NovellWin32.
Anyway, I will check to see what happens if I make it use some default non-zero size in case there is no about image.

Fixed in master, commit 1f9d435a78ed161c642410fddd627cf8161dabc7 in libs-core. In case the problem shows up also in an actual official libreoffice-3-3 NovellWin32 build, will have to cherry-pick that.
