OpenOffice freezing on 5.2-CURRENT

Hi. i just installed OpenOffice 1.1.2 from a package;
i need to work with some PowerPoint presentations and
it seemed the best way.

It looked like the install went fine, but now i cant
seem to actually do anything with it. When it runs,
the initial screen comes up but if i select the "open"
dialog box it just freezes. Some other options go a
bit longer--i can choose "New->Presentation" and that
pops up an AutoPilot window, but after selecting one
or two things that freezes too. None of these give any
kind of crash report.

i did the install as suggested, and there wasnt
anything useful in the README (i did try to unset
SESSION_MANAGER as suggested--im running GNOME--but it
didnt work).

What do i do? And if i cant get this working is there
some other PowerPoint thing I can use, or a PowerPoint
to HTML converter?
