	There are known issues with libreoffice-3.5.2; the most common
have to do with problems choosing the correct library (usually
involving boost (port vs. libreoffice native)).
	There is a work-around, described in a revent thread in
office at .
	There is also reason for hope this will be fixed in 3.5.4.
