Right Mouse Click Bug In Open Office 2 0n Ubuntu 5.10

I have an odd and annoying bug affecting my openoffice writer. Whenever I try to click the right mouse button over the text area the program hangs for a few minutes. If I leave the program for a while it comes right again, without however, displaying the right mouse button menu. Like I said very annoying as you can't cut and paste etc using the mouse. The problem is isolated to writer; calc and all the rest work fine.

I am using the latest version fot the distribution - 1.9129. It has had this problem ever since I installed the beta version of the distro a month or so ago. The problem is still exhibited under the final version. Open office 2 under hoary never showed this problem.

Upgrading to the latest version (the release candidate) from the openoffice website does not cure the problem either.

Does anyone have any suggestions? This is driving me nuts and effectively renders OO2 unusable. I have tried deleting my configuration files and uninstalling, reinstalling etc with no effect. Searching around the net shows nothing either, it seems the problem is isolated to me.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
