Please clarify the statement "the system freezes" - is this the entire computer.
If so are the keyboard lights blinking ?

Comment 2 algonquin 2002-12-17 07:48:32 EST
The screen with the exception of the mouse cursor would freeze. The cursor could
move but could not affect anything. I did not notice if the keyboard lights were
flashing.  One of the RHN updates seems to have fixed the problem as I can now
use OpenOffice as user, not just as root.

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