not yet merged, but I had a quick chat with Fridrich on the IRC about
these patches, he'd rather push them in master after 3.3.0 branch is
created, because thought them too risky ATM

I tried testtool.bin using instruction here:


obviously meant for universal LibO.
Following those instruction testtool started OOo instead.

Besides, it's not only testtool that the patches try to fix, but a
couple of functions in the LibO API as well.

Without these changes, those API functions can end into the OOo API
instead, though there is a workaround.

I was actually thinking to open an issue attaching to it some Java
examples and expanding all the matter a little, because I think I didn't
explain myself well.
And I think that should be explained better, with example.

Unfortunately to build an example I need an installable and working LibO
SDK, same as an user will experience, hitting some small problem along
the way (please see:
