On linux, commit id 5436f57 (pulled yesterday) built with
--enable-dbgutil seems not to honour a change to
ProductSource in versionrc.  A change to node Product >

(which used to work, and then stopped working) once again
changes the text in the title bar.  Meanwhile, my old notes
say that "the same" node in
worked in October, 2011 but not in November; I have not
tried it lately.

This question seems to come up every few months, so it seems
I am not alone in often running the version of LibreOffice
that comes with my distribution at the same time I work on a
newer version.  It just happens that "How To Build LibreOffice"
already has a section "Multiple Work Dirs", and that would
seem to be a good place to say how to change the title bar.
But ...

(*) Consistent behaviour in this respect then would become a
    feature to be maintained.  Does a reduction in questions
    to this list justify the maintenance burden?

(*) I only know my own observations (and I worry that even
    there I might be confused), so updating the wiki will
    take some attention (a little? a lot?) from somebody who
    knows more than I do.  Is it worth it?
