Right. It looks like I'll continue to use your build of OO.o,
then. The debian build also has a bug that causes a segfault when I
attempt to open an external database connection using ODBC, which
doesn't work for me since I'm working to connect OO.o to my gene

That will be great.

Thanks again Kevin for all that you've done for the community, both
with Java and now OO.o, it's certainly made my life a lot richer.
