  Description: Sets the default UI font to Arial. Without this patch,
  OpenOffice may pick a wrong font for UI. This is especially bad if
  the picked font does not contain national characters necessary to
  display menus (and to reconfigure the default UI font also).
  This happens e.g. in Russia when Bitstream Vera fonts are installed.
  The official solution is to use the "xset" command to remove such
  bad fonts from the path and then reconfigure the UI font using
  the font replacement table. This patch does the same configuration
  change without any mouse clicks and for all users.
  Before use, replace the string "Arial" with something more suitable to you.
