Description of problem:
When trying to run OpenOffice, it runs through the ooffice script, displays the
splash screen, the splash screen goes away, but then hangs inside
/usr/lib/openoffice/program/soffice.bin -- from the strace I would guess that it
is waiting for a socket, or something else (using sched_yield() -- BARF).
Nothing ever seems to happen (deadlock? dead daemon?)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new account (to avoid dot file dependencies)
2. Run OpenOffice, either from the command line or the Gnome menus
Actual Results: [hpa@loris hpa]$ ooffice
Checking for existing user installation ... ... NOT FOUND
Performing first-time installation for user ... mv: cannot stat
`/home/hpa/.sversionrc': No such file or directory
Starting OpenOffice.org ...
<splash screen appears>
<splash screen disappears>
11021 pts/1 R 0:04 /usr/lib/openoffice/program/soffice.bin
Expected Results: OpenOffice should have appeared.
This is a plain "Workstation" install of Limbo, explicitly for testing purposes.
No preexisting software or data existed on this system before the install.
