Hi *,

as  LibreOffice 5.0.2 comes with OpenGL rendering by deafult that
might  cause  problems on  certain  hardware/driver combinations,
there is a possibility of LibreOffice crashing on startup, so you
cannot go to Tools|Options → LibreOffice → View to disable it.

In this case, you  can use the registry setting attached to
https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=93546 to disable

so in case you stumble over bugs for rWindows that involve crash on
start, keep this  one in mind.
