Comment 1 Dan Williams 2004-02-10 15:05:08 EST
This happens because OOo is attempting to lock your ~/.recently-used
file for reading/writing.  When OOo freezes, can you check what
programs have that file open using 'lsof' ?
Comment 2 Dan Williams 2004-02-27 11:45:10 EST
Please try current OOo 1.1.0, and reopen if problem still occurs
