OpenOffice Crashes when attempting to run multiple instances of it

This attachment is the OpenOffice crash log
Description of problem:
OpenOffice crashes when you attempt to run multiple instances of it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open up a first instance of OpenOffice
2. Open up a second instance of OpenOffice
3. Program will crash, producing an error log
OpenOffice will crash
OpenOffice should *not* crash
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
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"
