Subject Re: The reason I removed the program called Open Office 3.4
Date Wed, 06 Jun 2012 02:17:26 GMT
As I remember, it is the 2nd customer complaint we got on this issue. And
some of us (e.g. Jihui) has confirmed it. If that's the case, my question
is do we have a defect id to trace it? If no, let's create one. And I will
suggest it as 3.4.1 must fix.
