I've built pkgsrc/misc/openoffice2 and now also openoffice3 on

open an empty spreadsheet (or any spreadsheet), and hit "Delete" on
any cell in it -> OpenOffice restarts immediatly into document
recovery mode.  No error is shown, also not in the xterm I started
soffice from.

Has anyone else seen this?
I can reproduce that (same platform and NetBSD version).  In practice,
though, instability has not been a problem for me.  The only serious
issue I have had is the inability to save .ppt files.

openoffice2-bin (32-bit linux binary), as well as openoffice3-bin
(manually installed rpms) work without any problem.
I haven't been able to get any 32-bit linux binaries to run.

Where is openoffice3?  In wip?

FYI, I can't reproduce this on a NetBSD 4.99.72 (GENERIC) i386 system. Maybe this is a AMD64 issue?
