oowriter2 break .recently-used escaping

Bug #24327 reported by Sebastien Bacher on 2005-10-20

Bug Description

While debugging a gnome-panel issue on IRC with an user we figured than
oowriter2 breaks the .recently-used escaping which creates issues (the user had
a gnome-panel crasher, it ignores the entry on my box).

Some applications escape the "&" from filemanes as "&". oowriter2 seems to
not be happy about that and rewrite them without any escaping which makes GNOME

Run "totem a_file_with_the_&_char" to get an example.

Matthias could consider forwarding that bug upstream or something? It breaks the
recent documents every time somebody uses openoffice2.org to open a documents
when have a "&" somewhere in its recently-used, that should be fixed for dapper
because it impacts the desktop experience

I am unable to crash gnome-panel with these names, not sure what I have to reproduce to make it crash. please could you recheck with 2.0.2? Upstream did mark it as "needsinfo"

Changed in openoffice.org2-amd64:
status: Unconfirmed → Needs Info
