GTK2, I'm running in Gnome.  For reference, this also happens when I try
to run OO from twm with no desktop manager.

I normally have $LANG set for other reasons, but I also noticed that
without it set, I see an error:

  I18N: Operating system doesn't support locale "en_US"

Presumably, OO was built with that as a default.  When I set
LANG="en_CA.UTF-8", the error doesn't show ... but it's notable that
this error is from /usr/local/,
so I know the binary is running.

I still don't know why soffice.bin exits with a return value of 78.

An interesting thread, but my symptoms are different from yours.  I get
no crash.  I get no quick flahes of a window on the screen.  Setting the
OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP env var changes OO's behaviour not at all.
