Description ccheney 2008-03-18 00:48:40 UTC
This bug is really strange.

1. Open the attached document (and leave it open for entirety of test)
2. Create new document File->New->Text Document
3. Insert the character 'É' then right click and select character->Font (Arial)
Typeface (Bold)
4. Notice the character changes from 'É' to a special single character that
looks like '...'

This does not happen if the attached document is not opened at the same time, so
it appears something about the document causes some kind of corruption in
OpenOffice. I don't know if has any potential security implications since I
don't know what the root cause is.

MRU->HDU: odd problem... when the attached file is open, and you enter an "E
with acute accent" diacritic into a new document, format it with Arial and
typeface bold, wrong character "..." will be displayed. Looks like a problem,
when the font replacement is already in use.
Comment 3 2008-03-18 17:06:00 UTC
Which Linux version is this? Is an "Arial" font avaible (please check with the Insert->SpecialChar dialog)?
Comment 4 ccheney 2008-03-18 18:14:55 UTC
Ubuntu 7.10 with official OOo 2.4.0~rc5 debs from (not the Ubuntu
packages). The problem also happens with the Ubuntu packages but I verified
against official packages. And yes 'Arial' appears under Insert->Special
Character. And inserting 'É' shows up properly until I change it to Bold. So it
only doesn't work when set to Arial Bold and only when the example document is
also loaded at the same time.

Now I can reproduce it (on DEV300_m3) if the albw*.ttf fonts from Suse10.2 are in the fontpath

Added a dependency on the probably related issue 83370.

retargeting, OOo3 is too close... unless a patch with a solution shows up.

That is a typical duplicate of issue 83376 => fixed in CWS vcl93 => OOO300_m4
