In the hyphenation dialog the right arrow button selects the next hyphenation point while the right arrow key selects the previous hyphenation point. The left button/key has the same problem.
In the sourcefile cui/source/dialogs/hyphen.cxx
These lines at the bottom looks a bit suspicious:
After changing these lines into:
Both the buttons and the arrows seams to behave as expected when I built and tested it.
[Reproducible] with Master "LibO-dev 3.5.0 – WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) English UI [(Build ID: f952331-4eb4f62-09af278)]". Arrow icons work as expected, but arrow keys on key board work swapped.
Your OS and LibO Version / Localization are?

Seems to be a very ole problem, also see that with "LibreOffice Portable 3.3.3 - WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) German UI [OOO330m19 (Build:301 Tag 188.8.131.52)]"
I did the testbuild on Ubuntu. I've seen the problem on Win 7 and XP, Mac OS X.
I've seen the problem in all versions of LibreOffice that I've used, from 3.3.1 to 3.4.2.
My guess is that it was introduced when OpenOffice.org reworked the hyphenation dialog to be more accessible, and that LibreOffice has inherited the bug. It wasn't there in OOo3.2 but in OOo3.3.
Thank you for quick feedback!.

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.
