Report from Sara, one of my classmates:

Greetings!

I found a bug in Libreoffice with the way it interacts with Plasma.

With plasma-gtk3, the application will not draw it's user interface fully.
 It will blacken every couple of seconds.

This sounds like an issue similar to what we had with Abiword previously. I'll investigate it since it's on my turf, but I do not look forward to it.

Fixed at revision 20971.

There were issues with poppler and a minor issue with boost. The type of changes needed indicate to me that future updates of poppler will not be an issue. What was needed in the latest was to just change Guchar to unsigned char in six places. The Guchar construct was taken from internal poppler headers and should never have been used in libreoffice.

Tested with latest plasma with no issues.
