Description Olaf Felka 2006-04-11 11:35:28 UTC
- seen on the host athene with Solaris 10 s10s_u1wos_19a
- locale set to de_DE.ISO8859-1 or en_US.ISO8859-1 
- starting soffice brings up a title bar that's unreadable
- switching locale to e.g. de_DE.ISO8859-15 solves the problem

The reason is that XmbTextListToTextProperty does return garbage in this case.
Exactly why it does that is beyond me; you can change the behaviour by settin or
unsetting environment variables (as long as you use enough of them), or by not
using IIIMP (e.g. by setting USE_XOPENIM=true).

This sounds like memory corruption, but i was not able to find the culprit; also
a test program would not reproduce the problem :-(. So i built in a workaround
for the time being.

fixed in CWS vcl57

Comment 5 Olaf Felka 2006-04-26 08:45:23 UTC
OF: It's ok with *.ISO8859-1 locales. No regression with other locales.
