is helpful for developers to know the information that was placed in
there. Thank you for your understanding.

** Description changed:

- Ubuntu 11.04 11.10
+ 1) lsb_release -rd
+ Description:	Ubuntu 11.04
+ Release:	11.04
+ 2) apt-cache policy libreoffice-calc
+ libreoffice-calc:
+   Installed: 1:3.3.2-1ubuntu5
+   Candidate: 1:3.3.2-1ubuntu5
+   Version table:
+  *** 1:3.3.2-1ubuntu5 0
+         500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ natty-updates/main i386 Packages
+         100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

- 1. start libreoffice main window
- 2. try to click on the bottom right part of the window (from where the window is resized)
+ 3) What is expected to happen is one may resize a LibreOffice window
+ from the bottom right by putting the mouse icon to the bottom right of
+ the window, click and hold, and move the window size as desired.
- What happens
- On click very weird results will be noted, screenshots for those weird problems can be seen through out the bug report as attached screenshots.
+ 4) What happens instead is if the white arrow pointing down and to the
+ right, clicking will bring up the File Menu, as well undesirable affects
+ (ex. the whole sheet is highlighted but clicking inside does not
+ unhighlight, can no longer resize). Other corners and sides works fine
+ for resizing the window. A screenshot of this problem: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/749986/+attachment/2078779/+files/Libreoffice_resize-grip.png
+ WORKAROUND: Resize using the top left and right corners or ALT+F8 and
+ use the keyboard.
+ WORKAROUND: create a .gtkrc-2.0__libreoffice file in your home
+ directory, with the following content:
+ style "default-style"
+ {
+   GtkWindow::resize-grip-height = 0
+   GtkWindow::resize-grip-width = 0
+ }
+ class "GtkWidget" style "default-style"
+ and then launch libreoffice writer (or another component) with the command:
+ GTK2_RC_FILES=.gtkrc-2.0__libreoffice libreoffice -writer
+ WORKAROUND: Make sure the black arrow pointing down and right shows up,
+ then resize is successful.
