Hi Andrew,

we are currently creating a minimal Java test extension; in the meantime 
you could also use the WollMux extension to reproduce the problem:

- Download
- Extract the file WollMux.oxt
- Install the plugin: unopkg add /path/to/WollMux.oxt (or, if unopkg 
isn't installed, use Tool -> Extension Manager in LibreOffice)
- export OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=kde4
- Close all LO instances and start LibreOffice Writer (lowriter)

Now just open Tools -> Extension Manager a few times. It usually crashes 
the second time the dialog comes up...

In case it isn't crashing, restart LibreOffice and/or make sure you are 
really using the KDE4 frontend (on a default KDE4 installation, the file 
open dialog should look like the right side of this picture:
