Description Roan Card 2013-05-07 13:51:00 UTC
First use after upgrading to Ubuntu Raring the LibreOffice (Version build ID 400m0(build:2))

While EDITING in web layout letter spacing moves horizontally: 
I wrote a few sentences using default style. Then went back to edit a typo in the previous paragraph. I noticed that, from the insertion point to about ten letters to the left, all ten letters jumped as a group about four or five pixels to the left. Adjacent to the cursor a letter was overlapping another. New letters were not inserted at the chosen position, but off by one character.
I used the arrow keys to move the insertion point lower down the page and begin editing there. I noticed that the overlap remained on the page. 
When I used a mouse click to move the insertion point the misplaced letters all jumped to their correct places, about four or five pixels rightward.
I selected all (with Ctrl-A) and changed to Text Body. Then I repeated all the above, with the same result.
My default font is Ubuntu size 12. 
I am using xfce4.10 with global menu disabled by uninstall appmenu etc.

Not reproduced with LibO on Win7.

@Roan: a lot of work is done around this subject. Is this still reproducible using newer versions of LibreOffice?

I fail to reproduce this bug myself using Linux Mint 17 x64 with LibreOffice and Version:
