Both problem and workaround are stated in as follows:

18.) When using OpenOffice, new files can be written, but existing files can not be opened, it just hangs. Stack trace shows it is attempting to connect to the Mozilla Security libraries. The script in /opt/openoffice/program/soffice has this bit of code in it:

# misc. environment variables

Commenting this out causes it to work. Security code works as well, you can create signed documents provided you install a certificate into firefox first.
