Hai Paijo..

I can confirm that behavior since LO to, also with AOO 4.1.1 under Ubuntu 12.04 x86. Seems inherited from OOO.

But according to m.a.riosv's comment in Bug 77343, disabling "Enable regular expressions in formulas" solves the issue. And I can confirm that.

Don't know if it's a bug or not, let someone decide.

*) Reset importance to normal, not qualified as a critical bug I think
