Attached is another patch (in libs-gui repo) that is in 3.4 but not in 3.3 
found with lo-commit-stat using: 
<root>/bin $>perl lo-commit-stat --log-dir='./' --log-suffix='mjWCRL-3.3'
--rev-list ../ --until='2010-12-01' --author='Johnsson'
origin/libreoffice-3-4 ^origin/libreoffice-3-3

and shown more directly by rev-list using: 
<root>/clone/libs-gui $> git rev-list --after='2010-10-01'
--before='2011-01-01' --pretty=medium origin/libreoffice-3-4
^origin/libreoffice-3-3 > ../../bin/libs-gui-rev3.4to3.3.log

    An opening quote should not be counted as a word by word count tool

Patch file: 

There is only one change in the patch: 
+++ b/i18npool/source/breakiterator/breakiteratorImpl.cxx

This addition to the (character class definitions?) stuff used by the break
iterator elegantly fixes the leading quote as separate word problem.  The
power of that single line left me: 
 -- wondering why only the leading quote and not the trailing quote went as
a separate word (breakIterator wouldn't tell me ;-), and 
 -- wondering about any other effects that this insertion may have.  

That said, if the symptom you are trying to fix is the 'leading quote as
separate word' then AFAIK this patch by Mattias Johnsson fixed that in the
master of late last year and in 3.4 from its birth to today.
