Bug Description

EDIT: Note the later dialog box (that can't be degarbled by selecting) with mostly correct fonts (incorrect at the top, not talking about the Chinese letter, which are a separate issue, that I however do not recall previously, but think I know what is..). Since the first dialog-box below, there was one or more completely garbled:

Note the first dialog may not always display, because of special my condition* but in case it does not everyone might realize you can select the text to see it:

"Either another instance of LibreOffice is accessing your personal settings or your personal settings are locked.
Simultaneous access can lead to inconsistencies in your personal settings. Before continuing, you should make sure user 'qwerty' closes LibreOffice on host 'Vinnuryksugan'.

Do you really want to continue?"

* There is no simultaneous access, and note, I not reporting a problem with the text per se, just that it was unreadable.

[I had just done a clean install to 16.04, but also copied my [/home] profile; Not aware of where font info is, it if came with the profile. I guess I didn't cleanly exit LibreOffice and it wouldn't have complained if my new machine had the same name.

I used ubuntu-bug -w (from the command line, but previously from the dash, that bizarrely opens "Ubuntu Software"; previously I tried "ubuntu-bug libreoffice"). Should I report something more on these extra issues?]
