I now checked my OOo with an RTF file and while it did not crash it
acted weirdly, opening the file with Calc and putting each paragraph
into a cell of a spreadsheet. Maybe something is broken about the RTF
Another idea: Did you try to move ~/.openoffice.org2 out of the way
temporarily? I have had it in the past that a crash screwed up my
configuration data and I had to start with a fresh one. (Very annoying,
of course, since you lose all your settings...)
