An image where you can see the bug.

On A1, when we can write in, jsut when we don't write anything yet, there is a black block (who is center).
It's a very strange and minor bug.

I have the same problem with a powerfull PC, on Windows 7 x64, with LibreOffice 3.4.2 (final).

[Reproducible] with "LibreOffice 3.4.4RC2  - WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) German UI [OOO340m1 (Build:402)]" 

[Reproducible] with Server installation of Master "LibO-dev 3.5.0 – WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) English UI [(Build ID:  d3d1481-3f8994a-2ba0a9f)]" (110909) 

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open new spreadsheet document
2. double click 'A1'

You see the same effect:
11. Open new spreadsheet document
12. Click D10
13. Menu 'Window -> Split'
    Window becomes splitted
13. Couble click D10 (Or A1), black area will be shown.

I thought that I would already have confirmed that (here or in an other bug), but I can't find any other bug.

Please feel free to reassign (or reset Assignee to default) if it’s not your area or if provided information is not sufficient. Please set Status to ASSIGNED if you accept this Bug.

Comment 8 Björn Michaelsen 2011-12-23 13:23:05 UTC
Since all new unconfirmed bugs start in state UNCONFIRMED now and old unconfirmed bugs were moved to NEEDINFO with a explanatory comment, all bugs promoted above those bug states to NEW and later are automatically confirmed making the CONFIRMED whiteboard status redundant. Thus it will be removed.
