This is a potentially serious problem I hadn't seen before and was pointed
out here recently...

The problem manifests in at least TWO situations (at least on my setup):

1. When using the SEARCH function (button with 'binoculars' icon)
 - click on TABLE to view
 - click on the SEARCH icon and enter your search term in the 'Search for'
 - choose SINGLE FIELD in the 'Where to search' area
 - in SETTINGS/Position choose 'Anywhere in the field' from the menu
 - click on  SEARCH until your term is found, and REPEAT this several times
 - at some point (repeating 3 times?), the listing will show a particular
found record REPEATED many times
 - clicking SEARCH again just goes to the NEXT (REPEATED) record
 - if I CLOSE the SEARCH WINDOW, and then I simply scroll down, the repeated
records disappear off the top of the window (as expected)
 - but then, if I scroll up the list, more multiple records appear, and it's
a different record than the initial repeating record

2. If one simply OPENS a TABLE as a table listing, the problem also
 - click on a database TABLE in Base to open the listing
 - scroll down until you reach the last of the first batch of records (99
 - then scroll up, and you might see these 'spurious' repeating entries

It looks like there is something seriously wrong with display mechanism for
database/BASE tables in LO. I  opened the same database in OpenOffice 3.3,
and there are NO problems at all! I'm using a Mac with LO 3.53. I haven't
check LO 3.3.x or 3.4.x (By the way, I'm running the database showing this
problem in 'file mode' but I suspect the other users reporting this problem
are using the standard "Embedded mode' configuration.) It looks like it's a
screen 'drawing' problem and, if ubiquitous, would pretty much cripple any
TABLE editing though the listing.

I'd be interested to hear if anyone else can replicate this problem or if
there are any other USER or BUG  reports about it.
