Comment 1 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2012-04-21 14:53:16 UTC
I do not reproduce with LO 3.5.2 (TDF version) with FR langpack nor with 
LibreOffice 3.5.4rc0+ (Version ID : 299387d-a73d29c-6845e52-f269e46-cd57e28) under Ubuntu 11.10 x86_64 (gnome-shell).

Please, who is your LO provider ? Ubuntu or TDF ? If you use an Ubuntu version, could you try again with TDF version from http://fr.libreoffice.org/telecharger/ or http://www.libreoffice.org/download/

Best regards. JBF
Comment 2 Marcel Stimberg 2012-04-22 07:29:20 UTC
I can reproduce the OP's error with Ubuntu's libreoffice version (3.5.2-2ubuntu1) on 64-Bit (another comment states that it is not reproducible on 32-Bit Xubuntu, though -- see the Ubuntu Bug Report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/986205 ).

With Libreoffice from the TDF (i.e. installing all the .deb's in LibO_3.5.2rc2_Linux_x86-64_install-deb_en-US provided by http://www.libreoffice.org/download/) I can not reproduce it, so the problem seems to be Ubuntu (or Debian) specific.
Comment 3 Björn Michaelsen 2012-04-22 10:23:23 UTC
see downstream: Not Ubuntu specific, cant reproduce with reporters version on precise/64Bit. Needs reproduction scenario.
Comment 4 Marcel Stimberg 2012-04-23 06:29:27 UTC
(again, see downstream:) The problem seems to be Ubuntu specific, after all. Ubuntu's LO 3.5.2 needs the libreoffice-base package installed to correctly open the file, with TDF's 3.5.2. (or earlier Ubuntu versions) this is not necessary.
Comment 5 Björn Michaelsen 2012-04-25 04:42:09 UTC
resolving as NOTOURBUG, as this is a caused by Ubuntu/Debian packaging: 


_rene_ commited a fix at Debian, so should be fixed with the next releases of Ubuntu and Debian.
