Cannot reproduce this with openoffice 1.0.1-2.
Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-07-30 12:37:22 EDT
Not reproducable here either. 
Please reopen this if you have more information on what's causing this for

I installed Limbo2 from the scratch, and problem still happens. I tried to run
soffice.bin with gdb, and it says "program exited normally".
Comment 4 Pavel 2002-08-01 06:59:15 EDT
It looks like every time an openoffice app opens without dialog, it exits
immediately. For example, if I open impress without a file, it displays a dialog
about a new presentation, and then continue to work. But if I open impress with
a file, it exits immediately.
Comment 5 Pavel 2002-08-01 12:17:02 EDT
Ok, I found 2 strange things about this problem.
1. Openoffice works under KDE and failsafe sessions (failsafe with twm, metacity
or without window manager), but it does not work under GNOME session.

2. It works under GNOME if I run it as different user (su anotheruser -c ...).
If I  log in as another user, then same problem happens.
Comment 6 Pavel 2002-08-08 04:47:48 EDT
I just noticed same problem reported on OOo discuss mailing list. My hardware
configuration (Celeron 300) is similar to the one reported there.
Comment 7 Pavel 2002-08-11 02:52:09 EDT
Please look at 

adding "unset SESSION_MANAGER" to /usr/bin/ooffice makes it work for me.

Please try current OOo 1.1.0, and reopen if problem still occurs
