User Profile can sometimes be corrupt, even on "clean" (i.e, no previous OO) installs.  We
on the Forum know that a very large proportion of OpenOffice problems can be cured by using
a new User Profile.  In the case of an advanced user, with much customisation in the profile,
it is possible to rename the old profile and later bring forward components individually to
the new profile until the bad component is isolated.  Life is not long enough for this, in
my opinion!

Until now, I could not reproduce this behavior.
May be it would help, if somebody who had this problem, keeps her/his profile 
folder and shares it.
