Yeah, I have noticed OOo freeze a few times lately myself. It should 
also be noted that I tried to kill -9 it with no effect.  Looks a bit 
locked up waiting for something.

pciconf tells me I have this graphics device:

agp0 at pci0:2:0:  class=0x030000 card=0x2030161f chip=0x35828086 rev=0x01 
hdr=0x00    vendor   = 'Intel Corporation'
     device   = '82852GM/GME/GMV/PM, 855GM/GME Montara Integrated 
Graphics Device'
     class    = display
     subclass = VGA

If I see this happening again I will run ktrace on it and see what I get.

Slightly unrelated but another bug I just noticed today.  Outline 
numbering does not save properly unless you save as a windows doc file. 
  The bug is documented and should have been fixed for 1.1.4.  Maybe it 
will get updated on the next update.
