Description Michael Stahl (allotropia) 2013-01-14 16:27:18 UTC
File->Wizards->Document Converter... dialog only lists "Microsoft Office"
but not "StarOffice" formats in 3.5.x and 3.6.x releases.

this is a regression from f3e40273b699910108007faf8a7991fe0498ad97
which does not actually return the value from the new function.

i'd like to fix this ASAP because binfilter was removed in 4.0
(which naturally doesn't show "StarOffice" in the dialog either,
but that is intentional because the required filters are gone)
so users want to use their 3.x release to convert their legacy docs.
