But you're right, we should fix this.

Sorry for this reaction, but I simply do not like it when someone who
prominently references Ubuntu files a bug with uncorrect info (the bug is there
even in stable) and thus would block OOo 3.0.1s migration to testing when
I didn't fix it...
I've reset it now to serious, now that the version-info correctly states
that it's in lenny already...

OK, what would you suggest instead? /etc doesn't work either. Which leaves
us with /var/spool/openoffice, although that does not fix exactly either
(but the uno_packages db/cache is also there, so...)...

But I'll look what needs to be changed in unopkg the JVM framework so that
it would grok an other path....
