The automatic correction uses the wrong quotation marks for de_CH (Swiss
German). Correct are «this ones», but OOo uses „this“.

Reassigned to SBA.

Confirming Issue. Please note that there is an easy workaround to replace the
current quotation marks with the ones of your choice. 
In OOo 3.2: Tools -AutoCorrect Options - Tab "Custom Quotes" -select the single
and double quotation marks of your choice. But note that these are used for all
newly written text in all languages thereafter.

Another point is that most people in Switzerland are not aware of the fact that
there are other quotation marks than " (zoll char). Or that there are «Swiss»
quotation marks.
