LibreOffice Base Doesn't Launch

Error message that appears when I try to run Base.
Description of problem:
Base fails to launch. An error dialogue appears.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log into GNOME Shell
2. yum install libreoffice-base
3. Go into the GNOME Shell overlay's applications tab and launch Base.
Error message (see attached screenshot.)
Base moduel should launch.
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.
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.
