Given the OP stated that he'd just updated to Rawhide, would it not
stand to reason that the OOo update was also from Rawhide?

This is the fun thing about bug hunting. I've filed quite a few bugs on
OOo which the maintainer has not been able to replicate, so the more
information, the better (which is why I've suggested what I have
suggested on the BZ entry)

> Can another machine open the same problem doc ?

Given it was created on another machine, I'd assume it can.

> What version of what application was used to create the document ?

Unless it was Word 6, it shouldn't make any difference. I have assumed
it was Word which created the file.

It's either i915 or Radeon X300, depends on what day Dell rebadged
someone elses work and botched it on.

> Are you really up to date ?
> # rpm -qa|egrep 'kernel|xorg|openoff'|sort

Given we're 2 days off FC5 full release, if the update was done last
night, then I'd assume the OP is fully up to date.
