Description of problem:
I'm using openoffice 1.0.0-7 on RedHat Limbo. When I run any of openoffice
applications they exit few seconds after displaying a window. No error messages
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Remove user openoffice installation
2. Run oowriter. Select cancel in Autopilot dialog. Quit oowriter.
3. Run oowriter again. Select "already registered user" and click OK.. Quit oowriter
4. Run any openoffice app.
Actual Results: Application displays main window then exits after few seconds.
Expected Results: Continue work.
Cannot reproduce this with openoffice 1.0.1-2.
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".
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.
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.
I just noticed same problem reported on OOo discuss mailing list. My hardware
configuration (Celeron 300) is similar to the one reported there.
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
