Actually, this is more complicated than I first though.  When I tried to run it and received that error, Calc was already running.

Now that I have exited Calc, Base launches.  I just shut down Base and loaded Calc again.  Base now starts every time so I cannot reproduce the error I was receiving consistently before.
Comment 2 Caolan McNamara 2011-03-04 04:05:29 EST
If calc was running, then base installed, and then an attempt to launch base that would probably explain it, given the single process nature of LibO the new process asks the old process to open a base window and the old process doesn't know about base seeing as it wasn't installed when it was launched.

Would be nice to fix this edge-case, but its not as critical as the gazillion other bugs we have, so I guess we can live with it.
