I don't use OO.o all that much, but it's not a problem for any of the
other apps I run daily - Evolution, gnome-terminal, xchat, revelation,
gedit, pretty much. Plus NetworkManager and all the other applet crap
you tend to forget about. They all work fine even if they get updated
while running. Okay, I've seen Evolution have issues maybe once or
twice, but it's certainly the exception not the rule, and it's never
crashed on me just because it got updated while running.
