I can not reproduce issue with nouveau nor nvidia proprietary drivers, but it exists on systems with radeon graphics (at least with rv730 and turks).
Need to reassign this bug for xorg/xf86-video-ati?
Comment 4 Buovjaga 2015-01-16 12:16:53 UTC
Yeah, I'm unable to repro with
Ubuntu 14.10 64-bit 
Build ID: 430m0(Build:2)

..but I'm using a virtual machine :)

Roman: maybe you can find some Ubuntu users with Radeon cards to test?

I can not confirm with Version:
Build ID: 8106e522c4ea2ae4441ec571579a38eeb6d9af04
TinderBox: Linux-rpm_deb-x86_64@46-TDF, Branch:libreoffice-4-4, Time: 2015-03-13_12:39:32
Intel graphic card.

To be certain the reported issue is not related to corruption in the user profile, could you rename this LibreOffice user directory ( see https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile#Default_location or http://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/903/where-are-the-libreoffice-data-profile-files/ ) and re-test?
