Package: openoffice.org
Version: 1.1.3-8
Severity: important

OpenOffice.org Calc ignores *at least* the following environment variables: 
LC_TIME and LC_NUMERIC, when deciding how to represent dates and decimal
numbers. It, however, uses the value of LC_MESSAGES to decide this. I think
this must be a policy violation since LC_MESSAGES should just affect menu
languages and such, not how to represent "1/7" in decimal or January 3rd 2005 
in numeric format.

LC_MESSAGES=en_GB.ISO-8859-15 LC_TIME=fi_FI@euro LC_NUMERIC=fi_FI@euro oocalc
Then type 2.2.2 into a cell, and you get 2/2/2 instead of 2.2.2 like you should.
The same happens with typing "=1/4", which produces 0.25 instead of 0,25 as the
Finnish locale would require.

Changing LC_MESSAGES to a finnish one, too, fixes both representations, but has
the side-effect of changing the menus to ununderstandable finglish (this is,
of course, what it should do).
