We may need to change the value of these special strings to avoid them starting by the "minus" sign.
Here are the strings to hack:
kohei, your advice on this easy hack would be great.
The right fix is when the auto select is showing a candidate value, we shouldn't treat it as the final value (hence changing the operator). Changing the value of '-not empty-' would only shift the problem elsewhere, it would not fix it.
Tibby Lickle has decided to tackle this bug, and fixed it in the following commit:
The solution is to disable auto completion in this dialog, which in our opinion is totally redundant there (since there already is a drop-down list showing all possible selections).

The chosen solution seems not good to me because:
- Loss of an important feature (autocompletion)
- Not homogeneous with the ergonomics (AFAIK no other case in LibO)
- Auto completion is *not* redundant with the drop-down, especially when there is a lot of data. Enter the first characters of the searched value (word) is a very frequent use. cf. this Issue: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=47412
The operator is no longer changed (when enter minus in value) : it would be good, please to restore autocompletion.
