Yep. I have the same problem (RedHat 5.1). I received one email to my post
suggesting that the problem was with the X-server I was using. It was suggested
that StarOffice has problems with SV3 servers and it is better to use SVGA. I
had no luck moving to an SVGA server (and it would result in a lower
resolution). If anyone knows another solution, I would be interested.
Otherwise I may have to save my pennies for Applixware.
By the way, how does one "powercycle the box to recover". I ended up using the
worst solution, the off-switch.
