And of course, most people won't be aware of the crash seeing as it
takes place during/after the shutdown of the desktop session, we get the
reports because abrt captures it and reports it the next time you log

*I* think we should try and fix it in LibreOffice 3.3 seeing as we're
flooded with these over in RH land.
