--- Comment #3 from Scott Fuller <> ---
I was able to replicate the described behavior in OO 3.4.1, using the following

1. Open OO writer via Start menu
2. Change Font Color to 'Black' via menu toolbar option. *
3. Enter text, which will properly show as 'Black' in color
4. Save document as an ODF Text Document (.odt)
5. Close the current OO Writer window
6. Close 3.4.1 Quickstarter via the 'Show hidden icons' button
on the Windows 7 taskbar
    6a. Click the 'Show hidden icons' button
    6b. Right-click the 3.4.1 Quickstarter icon
    6c. Click Exit Quickstarter
7. Reopen the saved document from the file manager (I saved to my default
'Documents' Library)
8. Note that the Font Color is now set to 'Red' once more. However, any entered
text will in fact match the previously used font color

* Note that upon launching OO Writer, the default Font Color appears to be set
to 'Red' although any entered text will, in fact, be black. Screenshot 1
depicts this behavior, and is identical to what will be seen at step 8, with
the exception that the file actually is named and saved.

My understanding of the original report, based on my testing, is that the bug
is that the Font Color (as displayed on the toolbar) being incorrect when first
launching Writer without the 3.4.1 Quickstarter already running.
If the document is closed and re-opened without closing the Quickstarter, the
Font Color will remain the same as it was.

Note that, as mentioned earlier, the displayed Font Color on launch does not
correspond to the color of text entered.

Possible follow-up tests could involve testing other methods of changing font
color (such as via the Character dialog in the Format menu), and whether this
bug affects other OO applications that utilize Font Color.

The behavior of this bug may possibly be related to issue 120372, because they
both involve the same feature (the Font Color toolbar option). However, this
potential relationship is currently untested.

Configuration information:

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit OS running on a Toshiba Satellite A500
Running OpenOffice 3.4.1 AOO341m(Build:9593) - Rev 1372282
