dtardon->yvm2bnath: The Tools->Options->Openoffice.org->Fonts->Size does not set size of menu font; it sets size of font for previewing HTML and Basic source files. AFAIK, you cannot modify the menu font from inside of OOo; you'd have to play with fontconfig settings.

I'm not able to reproduce the crash, anyway. If you have been able to repeat it, please, give us some more info.

The fonts used in menus etc, should be the same fonts used in the rest of the desktop, i.e. they should be the same size and fonts as in all GNOME apps and the setting is controlled for all of these at the same time from system->preferences->look and feel->Appearance->fonts

This was logged as a F-9 bug, but I see from the dmesg that it is a F-10 kernel. If OOo crashed there should have been a popup with details about the crash for copying and pasting into here. Did that dialog appear at all ?

Not enough information, if OOo crashed there should have been a popup with the crash stack.

Might have been a third party binary driver which was inhibited in doing something by selinux or something of that nature.
