One way to possibly solve it is to delete his hidden openoffice directory

#cd /home/username
#rm -Rf .openoffice

this will purge their settings, but not the docs and allow you to start
fresh....simply launching OO again recreates the settings directory and so
forth.  I've had to do this on occasion and it solves many issues.
