Description naoyuki 2007-03-15 06:55:49 UTC
This problem occurs Solaris/Linux. Windows version does not show surrogate pair
character, so can not be confirmed.

How to reproduce:
1. Open Writer
2. Insert->Special Character...
3. select "HG 明朝L Sun" which has non BMP glyphs in it
4. scroll character talbe to the bottom
5. select some U+2XXXX characters and click OK
6. put cursor at the end of inserted string
7. Press Backspace 
==> then need to type two backspaces for deleting one character
Cursor move with arrow keys or deleting with Del key have no problem.

you think this issue isn't fixed in a current version (OOo 3.1), please reopen
it and change the field 'Target Milestone' accordingly.
