Simply try to open / create a new document or try to start it.
Nothing happens when you have no internet-connection.

When you are working and you pull the network connector�, then try to
create an empty docment. Nothin happens, OpenOffice (=OO) stalled and
displays a grey window.

If you haven't started OO and try to load a document or simply want to
open the Software, the progress bar stopped stops at 100% and nothing

When you have an internet-connection everything works fine.

Do you have any network printers configured on your computer?  OOo
uses CUPS which seems to call gethostbyname() which is probably
hanging your computer waiting for a timeout.
