Since I have always used aptitude on this box my question, I suppose, is
why is libneon26 still installed. When I uninstalled whatever was

the current OOo is compiled for libneon25. But I can't see why the
maintainers would use an older library in a newer compile of OOo. Does
anyone have any ideas on this?
