3) What is expected to happen in LibreOffice Writer via the Terminal:

cd ~/Desktop && wget https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/207220/+attachment/2134007/+files/Unbenannt%201.doc && lowriter -nologo Unbenannt\ 1.doc

hover ones mouse cursor over the checkbox and it changes from the I to an arrow.

4) What happens instead is it remains an I.

reproduced in LibO 3.6.0 master on Fedora 64 bit
and in LibO 3.5.0 beta on Windows XP 32 bit
Comment 3 Julien Nabet 2012-09-15 07:07:18 UTC
On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today, I still reproduce this behaviour.

Michael: any idea about this or perhaps some code pointer if it can be an easyhack (for a dev of course! :-))
