Description thb 2008-05-06 20:34:39 UTC
With the fix for issue 77905, the gtk filepicker no longer remembers the state
of the link and preview checkbox (e.g. when inserting a graphic in Impress). The
changes to sfx2/source/dialog/filedlghelper.cxx (loadConfig: only load 'Link'
and 'Preview' states from configuration if not overwritten by another instance)
seems a bit coincidental to me - at least the api ref doesn't state that
getValue() should return a NIL any, if no value has been set previously. At any
rate, the gtk file picker implementation does not exhibit this behaviour,
therefore loadConfig() does not apply the settings.

Okay, the alternative would probably be to introduce some kind of "respect the
following config settings" flags at the file picker. Ugly, but the whole story
of how configuration in the file picker is handled is ugly, it can hardly become

Given that you're one of the most experienced developers in the OOo code base, I
am sure you can come up with a patch for this?
