all the borders of the window previously opened on the screen.

How reproducible:
Follow the steps below to reproduce the problem.

Steps to Reproduce:

then move the cursor over another cell.

Happens only if the comment box is drawn with its default size, not if resized. Apparently some miscalculation of shadow width/height.

When I debugged this I seem to recall that the extra distance came from some anti-aliasing "fill in possible ragged edges code" or something of that nature. I must revisit it to dig out the code in question. My thoughts at the time was that sticking a clipping region in to strictly enforce the bounds that the caption got drawn into might be the easiest fix.

adding LibreOffice developer list as CC to unresolved EasyHacks for better visibility.

see e.g. http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/minutes-of-ESC-call-td4076214.html for details

I do not reproduce this in LibreOffice 4.3 beta1.
I inserted a comment;
clicked another cell;
move to the commented cell, comment show up;
move to another cell, comment hided, with no extra line.

So this may be fixed in 4.3 ?

> So this may be fixed in 4.3 ?

I think it is. At least, I can not reproduce this bug anymore tested using Mac OSX 10.9 with LibreOffice Version:
Build ID: a06aa316117a6ff0f05c697c82831c227812d810

Marking as RESOLVED WORKSFORME because we don't know which commit fixed this behavior.

Kind regards,

Remove LibreOffice Dev List from CC on EasyHacks
(curtailing excessive email to list)
