textdocument with tables and numbering

There is a very annoying bug.

Every time I click into a table or a numbering the appearing toolbar gets the focus.

I've tried to make it reproducible.

1) I use Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 32bit, Gnome 2.30.2
2) The bug ONLY occurs if AOO (Quickstarter) is started by login to the profile.
3) After I completely close AOO (inclusive Quickstarter) and restart AOO the bug does NOT occur.

Attached is a sample document with tables and numbering.

I set the keyword regression because this problem was not present in OOo 2.x but I'm not sure if it was introduced with OOo 3.4 or earlier (IMHO not).

What do you mean by "the appearing toolbar gets the focus"?
Comment 2 mroe 2014-04-17 13:42:21 UTC
The text cursor stands at normal text outside any table or numbering. If you click into a table or into a numbering the format toolbar for tables or numberings pops up (if it wasn't docked before). This toolbar get the focus and you can navigate between the icons by cursor keys but you can't write into the document. You must click again into the table/numbering.

2) The bug occurs ONLY if AOO (Quickstarter) is started when login to the profile!

"login to the profile" means what?
Comment 6 Rainer Bielefeld 2014-04-24 05:27:59 UTC
NOT reproducible with server installation of "AOO 4.1.0-dev – English UI / German locale - [AOO410m14(Build:9760)  -  Rev. 1583418_2014-04-02]" on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit)", own separate user profile.:

1. Launch OOo via command line batch with parameter "-quickstart"
    > Quickstarter icon appears in task bar
2. Rightclick quickstarter -> Open Document -> Sample Document
   > Document opens
3. Click into Table
   > Table toolbar (undocked) appears
4. try keys <leftarrow> and  <rightarrow>
   > moves caret in table contents as expected

I can't remember that it is possible to navigate in toolbars by keyboard with WIN

Ubuntu can have many user profiles. If I login into one and the quickstarter is started by login then and ONLY then the isssue occurs.

Seems it is a special Gnome (deb-package?) problem.
