Bug Description

the packages openoffice.org2-gnome is supposed to offer a gtk file picker in
openoffice.org2, is this supposed to work ?

the original OOo file picker has a much different feeling than the gtk one,
getting rid of it would be wonderfull but it doesn't work on any of the systems
on which I tested it (at least 5). it doesn't work either with OOo 1.1 (but I
can remember to have seen it working a while before hoary release).

I remember of a crasher bug with the gtk file-chooser but can't find the bug
report, was it removed because of that ?
any hint to know if this wonderfull improvment will come back (it worked with
previous version of vanilla OOo2 but not with m113!) ?

they do work, but it not yet the default. please disable the checkbox "Use
OpenOffice.org Dialogs" in Tools/Options/OpenOffice.org/General
the interaction with the Standard OOo dialogs is considerd more stable.

yes, it crashes everytime here with gnome file chooser.
