OpenOffice.org Database crashes right off the bat


Hey all. Total nüũb here having problems with OpenOffice.org's Database option. Can't get past the "welcome" page (for lack of a better name). If I select either "Create Form..." or "Use Wizard..." it just freezes up, and I get this in terminal:
Code:
*** glibc detected *** free(): invalid pointer: 0xb6234678 ***
Then I have to force quit. This is OO v. 2.0.2, and I'm on Ubuntu 6.06, by the way. Thanks in advance.

P.S. - Can anyone recommend another db program in the meantime?

I tried creating a database, and got an error saying that a JRE (Java Runtime Environment) wasn't installed, and the selected JRE was defective. The error you're getting suggests that a free() function call was made with a parameter that hadn't been initialized with alloc() yet, or the version of glibc is older than required by OO.o, or there's a different problem with JRE than the one I was getting.
