There are many countries that use the "," symbol as decimal separator, but
keyboards with Spanish layout (what we use in Latin America and Spain) come only
with a "." (dot) printed in the keyboards' numerical keypads instead.
Having set the decimal separator to "," in the Windows Control Panel, if you
press the numeric keypad "." key to type a decimal number, Excel correctly
enters the current decimal separator chosen by the user (a "," in this case) in
Windows Control Panel.
But in OOo Calc when you do the same thing it enters the "." dot, regardless of
the decimal separator chosen in Windows. This is bad! Everytime you want to
enter a decimal you end up with a non numeric string in the cell. Currently the
only way is to press the "," in the main keyboard section. This is very
unproductive and ultimately annoying!

I don't know if this also happens under KDE or Gnome, but it would be a good
idea to check it, if OOo is to succeed in countries using the "," as decimal
separator, this should be fixed ASAP.

as you've found out by yourself, this is a double to Issue 1820. So I
set the flags.
