[Libreoffice] installing on ubuntu

Wanted to tell about two problems I've noted.

1) Libreoffice writer crashes when I press F1 without the help pack

Since the help pack is optional, this is a bit strange behaviour.

So I just downloaded today (2 apr 2011 12:00) the latest x86 debs.

Installing them goes fine until I try and install the helppack. That's
when I get 

sudo dpkg -i libobasis3.3-en-us-help_3.3.2-19_i386.deb 
(Reading database ... 354556 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace libobasis3.3-en-us-help 3.3.0-4 (using
libobasis3.3-en-us-help_3.3.2-19_i386.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement libobasis3.3-en-us-help ...
error: trying to overwrite
'/opt/libreoffice/basis3.3/help/en/sdraw.cfg', which is also in package
libobasis3.3-en-us-draw 0:3.3.0-4

Now, I can override it with  --force-overwrite, but it will be hard
explaining that to my father, who's used to doubleclick the package...

Do I do anything wrong?
