That's an odd experience, the "second" OOo should simply try and connect to the first one and get it to launch a new window and exit afterwards, i.e. only one OOo actually runs, so odd that the second one causes such a crash if the first one doesn't

Does it happen every time, or just the once ?
If it happens every time, can you  
tar cvzpf /tmp/config.tar.gz .openoffice.org/
and attach /tmp/config.tar.gz to this issue

G'day Caolan, 
It appears overnight this problem has fixed itself. I've just tried (after receiving your comment) to reproduce the error again but it all seems to be working fine now.

My apologies for the inconvenience.

Rats, that makes it one of those "it happened once, but not again bugs"
