[CentOS] Serious bug in OpenOffice.org Calc shipped with CentOS

Until now I've been a happy user of CentOS. Everything just works(tm), 
and I don't care if application versions are slightly outdated.

Next week I have to give a series of classes for a company that recently 
made the switch to Linux. On schedule is a one-week course for Writer 
and Calc.

And right now I discover that one crucial function of Calc, "fill 
series", doesn't work. Let's say I type "lundi" (monday) in one cell, so 
I can pull Calc's handle to fill other cells with the days of the week. 
Doing the same with "janvier" (january) does so with the names of the 
month. Well, this function is broken in OO shipped with CentOS. And I 
don't have the slightest clue as to why. Tried the same on a more recent 
version of OO in Ubuntu, and it works like a charm.

Anyone has a solution to this? This seems like a major nuisance to me.
