screenshot with scrambled text in recent documents

the names of files in the list of recent documents containing CJK characters are shown as scrambled text if the user interface language is set to a western language.

In the opposite case, with CJK as user interface language, even non ASCII characters like German umlauts are shown correctly.

I checked with & / Ubuntu 16.04.

CJK file names looked fine even after switching locales and restarting. In right after changing locale to Japanese, file name in recent files had blocks instead, but even then it displayed fine after restarting LO.

Can you test with a current version? I wonder if it could depend on distribution or desktop environment.
