Good, then prepare patch and that's it :) My observation about openoffice IS 
about OpenOffice (not LibreOffice) maybe 2yrs ago, and probably gtk2 < 2.20 or 
something like that.Also when i said "copy" from OO, I didn't mean copy via 
Ctrl + C , but via mouse selection and then middle click into eg TEdit or 
TMemo - that problem existed definitelly.
