OpenOffice.org Writer won't save, crashes


OpenOffice.org Writer has recently started crashing when I try to save anything. Save As..., Save, Save to Template -- they all instantly crash the program. OpenOffice.org also automatically starts up every time I re-login to Gnome. I killed all the OpenOffice.org processes before restarting, so I don't know what's causing it to start up automatically and then crash whenever I try to save things.

I recently installed a new Chinese input system, SCIM. I also recently had to delete an overgrown .xsession-errors file (450MB and growing when I deleted it). I also have several core dump files (the ones with the little bomb icons, right?) in my /home/me file. Are those normal? I've been deleting them, since they're quite large -- 45 MB, oftentimes. Is that okay?

I'm using OpenOffice.org 1.0.2 under Mandrake 9.1 with Traditional Chinese/Taiwan locale on my 350 MHz/256 MB RAM system.

I can't think of what other information might be relevant. Are there any files I should be posting here to give further clues?

How do I get OO.o working normally again? What am I missing?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give!

[edit: added what version of OO.o I'm using.]

You may have process starting with ooq (try ps -ax | grep ooq)

Gnome distribution has OpenOffice quickstarter that initiates OOo every time you log on so that OOo stratup time would be shorter.

No clue on crashes. Try upgrade to OOo 1.1
