does it make a difference ?

Comment 2 Jim 2005-10-28 12:19:09 UTC
It did not make a difference.  I have noticed that it hangs before I even try to
open the document.  If I go to open and browse through the nfs directories, it
is fine.  However, as soon as I select a document by single clicking on it, the
app hangs.

I fear the problem may be more deep-rooted here. Since I installed Openoffice
2.0.0-3.2.1, the Word Processor sometimes exits for no reason whatsoever. Help.
