I find your lack of faith disturbing, Lord Marchand. ;-)
In fact, I have been struggling with these bugs since one month and I
fixed some of them first on the 2.0.0 (which was a bit pointless) but
since I'm working on the 2.0.1, I really had hope to finish.
The patch attached to my previous mail is in the pipe to be included in
the future 2.0.1 Debian package (I've discussed with the Debian
maintainers of the OpenOffice packages). So, when the 2.0.1 will hit the
road it won't be necessary to apply the patch again.
Another thing !
I would suggest to report bugs directly to Openoffice.org, NOT to the
Debian maintainers. They might be NUMEROUS ones and the Debian
maintainers are already over-loaded, so it would help to report it
directly to the source.

Great ! Actually, I don't have a lot of time to maintain such
repository. Thanks a lot.

Ok. No problem.

You're more than welcome. ;-)

Hmmmm, it must be me... I'm such a stupid git sometimes. :-/
Why doesn't anyone listen to me?
