Hello. Recently the computer course in our middle school started 
working on OpenOffice Impress. All of the presentation portion is 
working fine, including making outlines, etc. However, as soon as 
individuals start adding pictures or animations the program just 
closes. Then when you reopen Impress it tries to recover the file and 

I haven't seen this happen first hand, but the computer teacher says 
this is happening. The students are importing only .jpeg (.jpg) format 
pictures. He also says that the program is not working properly as far 
as slide change timing and such. The biggest issue right now is Impress 
closing after students are importing and/or dragging and dropping 
pictures. Any suggestions on something to test or a solution would be 
greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.


PS - We are using Ubuntu 6.06 with LTSP. The computers are thin clients.
