Broken filter list in the Export dialog

Problem description: The list of export filters in the export dialog is broken.  There are possibly some invalid or missing special characters (such as | or newlines) in the input string from which the selection list is populated.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open some file in Draw
2. File→Export
3. Open list of "Filters"

Current behavior:
At the bottom of the list of filters, a number of entries is conflated into a single oversized entry.

Expected behavior:
Each export format selectable individually

Platform (if different from the browser): 
Gentoo Linux amd64 ebuild app-office/libreoffice- with use flags branding cups dbus graphite gstreamer java kde mysql opengl pdfimport postgres svg vba webdav xmlsec, using kde-base/kdelibs-4.8.1-r2 and x11-libs/qt-gui-4.8.0-r3.  I can provide further details about installed dependencies as needed.

It's the same on version Especially it's annoying in draw. You're not able to export drawing to image.

This is only happening to platform dependent dialogs (KDE/QT). On libreoffice specific dialog it's working ok.

I've notice this for this 3.5 series as well. As of 3.5.3 release, it has not been fixed. I use Chakra Linux KDESC 4.8 series. It's frustrating not being able to export to jpg...

I can reproduce the issue in Ubuntu 12.04. Package version is:

$ env LANG=C aptitude show ~ilibreoffice-kde
Package: libreoffice-kde                 
State: installed
Automatically installed: no
Version: 1:3.5.3-0ubuntu1

Also, I can confirm that unreleased version 1:3.5.4~rc2-0ubuntu1~ppa1 fixes the issue, as reported by Kai Spindler in comment #13 of related ubuntu bug LP:#942710.

Unfortunately, I can't say was the fix included in upstream or it is Ubuntu specific.
