I've filed a bug against OpenOffice. Please feel free to contribute extra
info that seems pertinent.

Gavin, have you played much with that shim script I sent you? Just wondering if it
works well or causes other problems.

Sorry, time has not allowed me. I'm in the middle of writing a thesis :-)

Hopefully I'll give it a bash soon. My assumption though is that it may
well destabilise the application it acts on.

CMC has written at least a partial fix to this issue in a patch to
openoffice which fixes a pixmap leak. This may or may not fully fix the
issue, but it might at least lessen its effect.

I'm copying the ubuntu core developers on the off-chance they might
consider this for an update to openoffice in gutsy.

Awesome news Gavin. I ran into the problem mostly when printing large graphics,
hopefully this might fix that as well.

Hopefully if nothing else the Hardy release might include FF3 and with this patch maybe
a more stable OpenOffice.

This is great. Thanks again for filing the bug Gavin, I sort of dropped the ball on
that back in August.

Well, it's not clear yet how much this fix will help, but some is probably
better than none. We'll have to see if the patch will backport.

The patch is a single line addition and it's easy to see how to apply it.
I'm trying to rebuild the openoffice packages for gutsy now so we can test
if this makes a difference and I guess I can probably pass people a package
if you want to test.

Building openoffice is really not a quick process.
