Maybe english isn't your first language, and you don't realize how
condescending your comments are?

This isn't *just* 'someone's pet bug'. This is a major regression that:

a) should have never happened in the first place

(copy/paste testing should have been among the very first tests the
dev(s) coding this major new change/feature performed)


b) since the new feature was replacing a fundamental, well established
behavior, the old functionality should have been kept in place as a user
configurable option for at *least* the lifetime of one full major
release, if not permanently (I would vote for permanently, because I
prefer the old pop-up way, as do many of the Libreoffice users I've
discussed this with, which is more than 100).

Or have to take some interest in helping the 
community and learn/find out how to install a daily build onto a non 
critical/test machine and help pushing the fix for the pet bug forward.


Again, sometimes people don't have time to do this for every single
release, especially when major feature changes are not pre-announced,
with calls for testing.

Again, sch major changes should *always* provide for a fallback to the
old way, at least until the new way is stable.

Anything else is just begging for ... well, threads like this one.
