The KDE4 integration has _very_ much issues. To name a few:

- floating symbel bar has no window margen (1.png)
- In comboboxes, text is corted a bit on top and a lot at bottom (2.png)
- non-selected (but available) tabs in tab view are greyed out, indicating that
they would be disabled (what's not the case, they are working) (2.png)
- Checkboxes are corted a little bit at bottom (3.png)
- Radiobuttons are corted a little bit at bottom (3.png)
- "up" and "down" buttons in spinbox are far to small to be usable

So there are many problems, for example:
1.) The file dialog often doesn't point the the correct directory or doesn't
select the necessary extension
2.) Showing a menu - a very simple task - takes 1 sec. After leaving the menu,
it takes another 1-2 sec until it has disappeard.
3.) Loading of complex dialogs (several tabs) takes even longer.

This makes OOo tiresome and so slow that it is not usable for real world usage.
(Finally, I've switched to the vanilla version, downloaded from
- despite the disadvantages that this change also brings)

And for all that disadvanteges, we get nothing than an ugly, badly adjusted UI

I strongly recommend to remove the KDE4 integration of OOo from 11.2 and wait
until it is major.
