"i tested this fix and it worked for me".


but you are right, i should have said it.
I started the build of openoffice yesterday afternoon, without the patch,
and the build died twice on my laptop (512MB ram + 1GB swap)
after spending hours with the compiler looping around 'swread'.

When I applied the patch after lunch today, the build of the offending
file went smootly as the rest of the components, and in some 30min
since i restarted the build i managed to complete and install
openoffice 3.0.
