I confirm the error with LibO 3.5 Beta2 on Windows XP (with east-asian signs installed) and Windows Vista 64.

I works fine with LibO 3.4.5 (tested on Windows Vista 64). 

This is a regression.

In RTFDocumentImpl::resolveChars we read in one code unit at a time but in a stateful encoding like ms932 we need all chars. we can't convert half the input sequence at a time
Comment 5 Miklos Vajna 2012-02-13 08:58:01 UTC
Reproduced, will have a look at it soon. We already handle multiple \u tokens in one go, something similar could be done for \' tokens.

It has been pushed to "libreoffice-3-5":

It will be available in LibreOffice 3.5.2.
