Bug Description

Binary package hint:

Openoffice 3.0.1 in ubuntu 9.04 uses old version of ICU library(libicu) and this causes wrong rendering of langauges, particularly Malayalam(ml_IN)

Version of libicu in jaunty : 3.8-5 ( )
Version of libicu in karmic : 3.8-5 (
Version of libicu in Debian testing: 4.0 (
libicu 4.0 has the fix for this ticket: to fix a Malayalam rendering problem

Since it is not included jaunty or karmic, Malayalam rendering is wrong in Ubuntu 9.04

Use libicu 4.0 version

How to reproduce:
Always reproducible
1. launch open office writer in ubuntu 9.04, and paste this text: " അതു് " .
2. Compare the rendering in gedit or browser or compare the redering with Openoffice in Debian testing
