can you from a terminal do

gdb /usr/lib/openoffice.org2.0/program/soffice.bin
(gdb) run
(gdb) bt

and post in the results.

Do you have a nvidia graphics card and are using the "nvidia" graphic driver ?

Sorry I was moving and have not had a chance to get back.
I did not find the other bug posting when searching (please forgive me)
Yes you are correct it really is not a bug but a residue file left from the
Nvidia 8178 drivers. Which I apparently installed.  Thought I only used the
livna rpm.  deleted the shared 8178 library and the links and error is gone.
