In Impress you can change the measurement units to miles or kilometers, UNLIKE
other OOo apps which allow only: Millimeter, Centimeter, Inch, Pica, and Point.
If someone uses the big units, that would easily cause some problems.
For example:
1. Create new Impress presentation.
2. Go to Tools->Options-> Impress->General->Units of measurement.
Choose Miles and press OK.
3. Insert a table (for example).
4. Right click on the table border then click on "Position and Size.."
5. Do NOTHING! (just notice that the size is 0.001 miles and no way to enter
higher precision numbers) Then click OK.
The table will be resized to the smallest size possible.

Same happens with pictures, and presumably any object at all.

I've tested this using OOO300m15 (3.0.1) on Windows Vista.

I checked with "Ooo 3.0.1 (DE) Multilingual version GERMAN UI WIN XP: [OOO300m15
(Build 9379)]" and can confirm the reported effect.

Same problem in DRAW
