Bug#396276: Returns immediately, breaking some software

Package: openoffice.org-common
Version: 2.0.4-3
Severity: normal


When one calls "/usr/bin/ooffice <file>", openoffice.org will
immediately return. There is no immediate need for this, and it breaks
in some use cases.

The MUA mutt, for example, when asked to "view" an attachment through an
external application, will save the attachment to a temporary file, call
the viewer, and when the forked process exits, will immediately remove
the file. Since it takes far longer for openoffice to start than it
takes for mutt to remove the file again, this means that the only thing
openoffice.org will be able to do is to produce an error message about a
missing file.
