And now, the openoffice bug. Major one (wrong shortcuts i think it was)
Fix is waiting on releng to get pushed. Main cause was updating the tarball to
latest supposedly "stable" ooo-build sources, into which Novell had pushed a few
broken patches. Will be more careful in the future, but the 1.1.2->1.1.3
transition was difficult and people really seemed to want 1.1.3 for some reason.
