So... I installed a libreoffice 4.1 (latest stable release)
I made sure that java was working for libreoffice.

then I upgraded to maverick

immediately after the install was done, I started libreoffice again...
then selected 'Writer'... typed a charactere
A pop up showed-up warning me that Java 1.6 is not avaialble, and
asked me if I wanted to install it.
I answered no to the request to install java
at this point there is no more lo running, although there was no
crash-report dialog.

I started again... a lo crash recovery windows was presented for the
writer document I was on...
I said no to recovery and proceeded with creating a new writter document..
same symptom... this time I replied 'yes' to the install of java
after java has been installed, Libreoffice is restarted automatically,
and a lo-crash-recovery windows is presented again...

After that lo works normally
