Description Matthew Paul Thomas 2011-10-19 11:05:33 UTC
LibreOffice 3.4.3 OOO340m1 (Build:302) (libreoffice 1:3.4.3-3ubuntu2), Ubuntu 11.10

1. In a Writer document or Calc spreadsheet, open the "File" menu.
2. Close the "File" menu, and focus the text field part of the Font Name or Font Size combo boxes in the Formatting toolbar.
3. Type Ctrl W or Ctrl Q.
4. Click in the document.
5. Type Ctrl W or Ctrl Q.

What happens:
1. The menu contains a "Close" command with a Ctrl W keyboard equivalent, and an "Exit" command with a Ctrl Q keyboard equivalent.
3. The document does not close, and the application does not exit.
5. The document does close or the application exits.

What should happen:
3. The document does close or the application exits.

This bug does not happen with all combo boxes. For example, it does not happen with the Name Box in Calc's Formatting toolbar. But it does happen with the Apply Style box for an HTML document.

If you have time, please do the following:

(5.4.1 or 5.3.6  https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and

3. Leave a comment with your results.
