OpenOffice Quickstarter prevents Ubuntu to restart

Bug Description

After the Quickstart of Openoffice is activated via Tools -> Options -> Memory -> Enable systray Quickstarter in Openoffice, then it is impossible to restart the PC by clicking the "Restart" item in the upper right corner menu (default menu position). The Quickstarter has to be exited and then the "Restart" works.

OS Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit, Alpha 3 fully updated (probably = Beta 1)

Confirmed using a fully updated lucid i386 installation.

Note: I can only reproduce the problem if I actually run one of the openoffice applications e.g. writer before attempting a restart.

After opening and closing writer I cannot restart Ubuntu using the indicator-session applet without first closing the openoffice quickstart applet.

I can restart ubuntu from a terminal with : sudo shutdown -r now

Changed in ubuntu:
status: New → Confirmed

I have this issue as well. (AMD64 10.04 beta 1)

BTW, the quickstart icon lacks transparency as well, thus not integrating properly with the new "Ambiance" lucid GTK theme.

Confirming this issue in Karmic using OO3.2 and Lucid using OO3.2. Able to shutdown the system only exiting the OO Quickstarter.
