Hmm, this is interesting. ;)

The build I'm hacking here is from Mar 26, when I tested it with a newer
master (3 days old), I get a different behaviour: --conver-to does not
initiate any conversion at all:

~/git/libreoffice/master/install/program$ ./soffice.bin --nologo --convert-to doc --outdir /home/vmiklos /home/vmiklos/hello.rtf --headless
~/git/libreoffice/master/install/program$ ls ~/hello.doc
/usr/bin/ls: cannot access /home/vmiklos/hello.doc: No such file or directory

In case I omit --headless, the GUI starts up fine, but there are still
no conversion.

Sure, no running instance in the background.

What version is running fine for you?
