	Sorry about that, if you poke the soffice wrapper there is a
--backtrace option in recent versions that (most likely) works
reasonably, hacking that is the safest way I guess.

	If you want java working, it is necessary to run javaldx, which finds
the JRE and sets the right LD_LIBRARY_PATH nastiness to make that work
(IIRC), and that is now spawned by the ooquickstart.

	It is possible that that will 'just work' and that running gdb on
soffice.bin would be enough, but ... is it impossible to gdb and attach
to the pid when it's started.

	Thanks so much for spending the time on this ! very much appreciated.
