I can reproduce this with 
LibO_3.5.0rc2_Linux_x86-64_install-rpm_en-US.tar.gz from 
<http://www.libreoffice.org/download/pre-releases/>.  The problem is 
that readRdbFile (cppuhelper/soruce/bootstrap.cxx) in 
/opt/libreoffice3.5/ure/lib/libuno_cppuhelpergcc3.so.3 calls 
SimpleRegistry::open (stoc/source/simpleregistry/simpleregistry.cxx) in 
/opt/libreoffice3.5/ure/lib/bootstrap.uno.so (with 
rURL="file:///etc/opt/ure/types.rdb"), which throws an instance of 
css.registry.InvalidRegistryException (correctly so, as rURL does not 
exist), but the code in libuno_cppuhelpergcc3.so.3 fails to catch that 
exception with its

   catch (css::registry::InvalidRegistryException & e) {

code block.  Very suspicious, esp. given that both 
libuno_cppuhelpergcc3.so.3 and bootstrap.uno.so export the _ZTI/_ZTS 
symbols for InvalidRegistryException (and new GCC versions no longer 
compare on the brittle RTTI pointers, but on string equality, anyway).

I have currently no idea what's broken there.
