odt file containg hebrew text with niqqud in 2 fonts
from another application I can copy the word
into writer and it gets displayed correctly, however when I chose a font such as
Ubuntu, the niqqud are not displayed nor can I type/write/input them.
This problem does not appear in 4.0 (OO 3.3 OO 4.0)
I attach the odt and the two pdf files.

pdf file generated by LO 4.1 NOT all niqqud are displayed
In fact Ubuntu font doesn't contain any Hebrew letters\niqqud, so what you see is a substitution by DejaVu Sans font. So basically you except that the niqqud will be also shown using DejaVu Sans. But I would say that LibreOffice should not allow choosing a font which doesn't contain Hebrew letters, when the active language is Hebrew.
I can reproduce this problem using 126.96.36.199 under Ubuntu 13.04 (64-bit) & using 188.8.131.52 under Ubuntu 13.10 (64-bit). It's reproducible with every non-Hebrew font. But I can't reproduce using 184.108.40.206 under Fedora 19 (64-bit). So looks like Ubuntu specific bug.

Indeed, fixed by the same commit.
