[Libreoffice-qa] Bug #92434

   Here is the problem: I filed this bug in the beginning. Since that time, it has been marked fixed for 5.01. The patch to fix this is in the daily builds. I have downloaded a daily build on July 20 ( The problem still exists for the Debian version for both x86 and x86_64. (I use Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit and 14.04 for 32bit). and have the same bug.
   So, this is where I get confused. It is marked as fixed, but the available daily builds and RC Debian versions still have the bug. What do I do?

Hey Dan,

So a couple things:
1) It's rarely appropriate to report a new bug that is reporting behavior that is already reported - the only time this really is appropriate is if the original bug is really old and was fixed at some point - then reporting a new issue is best;

2) REOPENED should really never be used unless you know what it means - that the bug was reported FIXED by a developer and someone on the bug report still sees the issue on the release that the developer marked it as FIXED for - else UNCONFIRMED or NEW (confirmed)...if the bug went to WORKSFORME then UNCONFIRMED is probably best to get another person to confirm the issue;

3) Comments should include your version of LibreOffice, your operating system, and if the bug report doesn't already have clear repro steps and simple attachments, then add those as well.

      I have downloaded RC4 this morning. I will be checking this bug against it. If I find a problem, do I add a comment to the bug, or do I file a new bug? Two days ago, I added a comment to this bug after testing it against that day's daily build. The bug was still there. I reopened it at that point. This is why I am asking. I'm not sure I did the right thing in reopening the bug.
     I will list my results by this afternoon (I live in eastern US).
