I have found that OO 1.1.3 on FC3 dies on shutdown and often when I open a 
second document.  The shutdown problem, at least, is a segfault in X11 
code apparently caused by KDE's use of Qt's pixmap code.  I googled around 
a bit and didn't find anything on it.  I've not taken the time to dig into 
the code to find out exactly what the problem is or whether the shutdown 
and hang during opening are the same problem.
