Hmm -- I just upgraded my -current machine to last night's sources
(1.6ZD), and OpenOffice no longer works on that machine. This is on a
256M machine. It displays a bunch of the usual
file_image_pagein: Function not implemented
messages, and then does nothing. But it's in some sort of loop; it's
taking up all available CPU time, according to 'top'.
