Re: OpenOffice.org hangs on start up

I don't know if this is the same problem, but yesterday I just fixed a
related issue on my system
(AMD64, Sid). When trying to start OpenOffice from the pull-down menu
in Gnome, I got the
"please wait" clock symbol, but the program never started. Running
"sudo apt-cache showpkg openoffice.org" revealed many missing modules,
including openoffice.org-writer, which prevented
the word processor from running (it wasn't installed). The problem was
solved by running "sudo apt-get install -reinstall openoffice.org" .
After a recently upgrade, OOo in sid (amd64, version 1:3.0.1-4+b1,
with Gnome) no longer works anymore. It just stops while showing OOo's
splash screen, with CPU usage 0% and no output at all on command line.
Indeed it is difficult to locate the problem, because I cannot find an
options like "-verbose" or "-debug" to obtain more information: the
man page of ooffice is for OOo version 2, and "ooffice -help" lists
little useful options.
I tried "ooffice -nologo", then tried to rename the folder
"~/.openoffice.org/", then tried to remove package
"openoffice.org-gtk" and "openoffice.org-gnome", but none of those
Any ideas? Thanks!
Don't know if this problem is the same as yours, but thought I'd offer
it as something to check.
