Bug#481518: Bug seems to be solved upstream
I have reproduced the same problem in the attached file using
openoffice.org version 1:2.4.1-12. What causes the bug (in the attached
file) is the character that looks like a non-breaking whitespace. If you
close openoffice.org and then open the attached file, the bug happens.
If you delete the whitespace, save the file, close openoffice.org and
reopen the file, the bug is gone (well, not gone, but it doesn't show).
If you do not delete the non-breaking whitespace before saving the file,
the bug remains.
I believe this bug is described upstream:
Please fix the bug before Lenny is released, because it is really
annoying. It seems to be already fixed in Openoffice.org 3.0, but not in
