Well, I'll toss in my observations - which assuming I'm doing this
correctly might point more to a problem, if there is one, withing the
deb packages.

OpenSUSE for the OS.
Libo 3.5 (11-05 master build) EN_us pre-installed at /opt/lo-dev

download the fr language pack files from 11-05 and unpacked the .gz

from the new RPMS directory run the command
sudo zypper in *.rpm

Start Libo, no problem
Change UI language from EN to FR
Restart Libo, no problem

Change the UI language back to EN and exit

Start Yast then Software Manager
Select the entry 'none' under repositories which holds all of the Libo
files including the newly added FR language pack files.
Remove the FR language pack file.

Restart Libo, no problem
