Libre Office no longer runs slideshow after latest updates

Just completed the latest round of updates to current, followed by Eric's excellent build of LO (Thanks Eric)
All is working well with the one exception. LO won't run slideshows in Impress. I can create a presentation, or open an existing one, but when trying to run it LO itself just stops responding and the only key it recognises is escape.
I've tried all the usual stuff like disabling visual effects etc to no effect.
Anyone else noticed this and found an answer?
