"Save as"-dialogue in German language

German language: Save as / Speichern unter
--> Apache OpenOffice 3.4

"Automatische Dateinamenserweiterung" is too long and is hyphenated WRONG - see picture.

This is a very old bug which also exists in all LibreOffice Versions.

This about the system save-as dialog.

I see this problem on Windows7, but not on WinXP. The dialog has a very bad arrangement of the elements and an unnecessary constrain of the width of the labels. I guess, that this is a problem not only for German. It should not be solved by changing the German string, but by redesign of that part of the dialog.

Other applications on Windows 7 show a better arrangement of this additional elements of the save-as dialog.

i can reproduce,and it really looks a little ugly,but i think it not block AOO341 release,so suggest change issue type to "enhancement" or don't flag it as "	3.4.1_release_blocker".

This bug also exists in the current version 4.01 (Tested with Windows 7)!

If the fix would be to much effort, please correct the hyphenation als suggested.

Thank you.
