am having a problem with OpenOffice2.4.0, it will not open any files. It just hangs when trying to open from the open file menu. I get the following error message on the terminal that OO was opened in
(process:1882): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: gtype.c:2248: initialization assertion failed, use IA__g_type_i
nit() prior to this function

(process:1882): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_once_init_leave: assertion `initialization_value != 0' failed

(process:1882): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_new: assertion `G_TYPE_IS_OBJECT (object_type)' failed

I dont use gnome or kde. My window manager is xmonad. I am running FreeBSD 6.3 .

I have Googled the error message and cut down versions of it with no result.

Any help most appreciated.
