From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050328 Fedora/1.7.6-1.2.5

Description of problem:
I'm trying to set up ooffice with MySQL/unixODBC, but I don't think this is relevent.
Whenever I attempt to administer (administrate?! - is it a word?) data sources from what ever tool the whole ooffice programme freezes - force quit/killall only solution.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.open ooffice (writer, anything)
2.Tools -> Data Sources... ->...

Actual Results:  Hang

Expected Results:  managed database setup

Additional info:

I think this only started on up-date to 1.1.3?  But, didn't pay much attention till now.

I've just reinstalled OOo1.1.3 clean and can confirm this bug isn't a
consequence of my set-up of OOo.  When I get a moment I'll revert to 1.1.2 & see
if this solves the problem.

Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.

I upgraded to fc3, it fixed it.
