The toolbars on openoffice are behaving erratically and do not 'seem' to
remember any settings. Example: if you change from drawing something. such as a
box, then decide to type something - the toolbar for the formating disappear and
reappear. This causes the whole screen to toggle backwards and forwards, which
makes it very hard to read or actually use the tools. I am sure this could be
classified as a feature - but really it is a bug.


1) Launch oodraw
2) Select the "Line" tool
3) Drag the "Line and Filling" (2nd toolbar from the top) to a new location.
4) Select the "Text" tool. The "Line and Filling" toolbar will hide and the
"Text Formatting" toolbar will become visible. The "Text Formatting" toolbar
will be in the default location instead of the same location as the "Line and
Filling" toolbar. It appears to the user that the formatting toolbar has reset
its position.
5) Select the "Line" tool again and the "Line and Filling" toolbar will reappear
in the location it was dragged to. The user now thinks the toolbar is jumping
around the screen erratically.

This looks like bug 64027 but may be unrelated.
