Bug#417929: openoffice.org-core: CWD prepended to 'file:' URI after ooqstart invoked

Package: openoffice.org-core
Version: 2.0.4.dfsg.2-5etch1
Severity: normal

'ooqstart' or an intermediate app/lib directly or
indirectly spawned/accessed by
'ooqstart' appears to prepend/prefix the current
working directory (CWD) to at least a
'file:' URI if not also other URIs. Thus for example:
   'ooqstart -writer file:a.txt'
results in:
   'soffice  -writer /home/user/file:a.txt'.

This situation presents itself for example when
opening an openoffice
associated attachment within evolution. Since
ooo-writer.desktop uses %U for its
'exec' variable 'file:filenamepath' is passed to
'ooffice' (aka ooo-wrapper) and
thus on to 'ooqstart'.

It would seem that this bug would have readily
presented itself and thus probably
has already been reported. In scanning the internet
and the debian bug reports,
however, I did not discover any mention of it.

Possible workarounds until it is fixed are using '%f'
in 'ooo-writer.desktop' and
creating a link in a user's directory from

I hope this helps.
