[K12OSN] Openoffice Menus (revisited)

For some reason I can't find the right thread searching the k12osn 
archive...  I know that the topic has come up here before, and I dont' 
remember if there was a solution.

I have several clients that require the XF86_SVGA driver to run at 
800x600, and all is well, except that openoffice is crazy.  The menus 
take 2-3 seconds to build, and traversing them with the mouse results in 
unbearable mouse studder, etc.  Also, the fonts look terribly blocky.

I had to do the unthinkable today, and direct the teacher to rdesktop 
and connect to a windows terminal server to use Microsoft Word. 
Definitely not what I wanted to do...

Was there ever a solution to the problem?
