Its a problem with OO 2.3.1 / GTK I think. I have the exact same issue 
here, when I build 2.3.1 in ports, I get this error whenever I save a 
doc or sometimes even open a doc:

>/ (process:67964): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: gtype.c:2242: initialization assertion failed, use IA__g_type_init() prior to this function
/>/ (process:67964): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_once_init_leave: assertion `initialization_value != 0' failed
/>/ (process:67964): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_new: assertion `G_TYPE_IS_OBJECT (object_type)' failed

After this error, the software just hangs, has to be manually killed.


Looks like its the exact same issue as here:

I noticed that a patch was made to fix it:

Any chance this will be put into the port? This is rather an annoying 
problem :)
