I found out, that for some reason I have installed
ii  libreoffice-debian-menus                          3.6.7-2
all          LibreOffice desktop integration
ii  libreoffice4.1-debian-menus                       4.1.0-4
all          LibreOffice 4.1 desktop integration
. Though I have purged LO 3.6.7 a couple of days ago, I seem to have
missed this one ... :(

Thanks for your answer

<knghtbrd> add a GF2/3, a sizable hard drive, and a 15" flat panel and
           you've got a pretty damned portable machine.
<Coderjoe> a GeForce Two-Thirds?
<knghtbrd> Coderjoe: yes, a GeForce two-thirds, ie, any card from ATI.
