Yours is the third such report I've seen today - something must've gone
wrong with fonts somewhere.  The person I spoke on on IRC found that he
could get it to work by removing fonts from the font path until it started,
then changing the user interface font a la README.gz.  That makes OOo use
the font you ask for instead of automatically looking for a font... and
finding one that doesn't work properly.

It would be good to find out which font is being picked on these problem
machines.  I can't reproduce it here.
