  libatk-adaptor breaks down the LibreOffice TexMaths extension

Status in at-spi2-atk package in Ubuntu:
Status in at-spi2-atk package in Debian:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Package: libatk-adaptor 2.18.1-2ubuntu1
  System: Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS (Xenial Xerus)

  If the package libatk-adaptor is installed on Ubuntu (as a depency of
  gnome-orca for example), it breaks down the LibreOffice TexMaths
  extension. TexMaths is a popular extension used to enter / edit LaTeX
  equations on LibreOffice (see http://roland65.free.fr/texmaths).

  Step to reproduce the bug:

  1. It is assumed that LibreOffice 5.1.4 (with at least the Writer and
  Draw components) is installed on Ubuntu. It is also assumed that
  libatk-adaptor is installed.

  2. Install texlive:
  sudo apt-get install texlive

  3. Download and install the TexMaths extension (version 0.42) from
  there: https://sourceforge.net/projects/texmaths/files/0.42/

  4. Create a new empty Writer document, then click on the Pi icon (this
  is the TexMaths icon) and in the window that opens, type: 'x(t)+y(t)'
  (without the quotes), then click on the LaTeX button. This generates
  an SVG image of the 'x(t)+y(t)' equation.

  5. Select the SVG image of the equation by left clicking on it. Then
  click on the Pi icon. Now, instead of editing the equation, an error
  message is displayed: "The selected object is not a TexMaths
  equation... Please unselect it and call the macro again...".

  6. Now, right click on the SVG image and select the 'Description' menu
  voice. In the window that opens, the description is empty and does not
  contain the equation text, as it should.

  7. Now purge (and not just remove) the libatk-adaptor package:

  sudo apt-get purge libatk-adaptor

  then logout and login and repeat the steps 4, 5, and 6: everything is
  OK and the equation can be edited as usual.

  Another way to remove the bug instead of purging libatk-adaptor is to
  rename the file: /etc/X11/Xsession.d/90atk-adaptor to
  /etc/X11/Xsession.d/90atk-adaptor.orig . Then logout and login.

  Note there is another bug #1584795 that relates libatk-adaptor and
  LibreOffice, see there https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/at-
