Are you sure it does? If you already have a soffice.bin running, does this
indeed start a new one, or connect to the existing one?

If there indeed is just one soffice.bin process running (this is on Windows
or Linux, right?), I suspect this will terminate it.

Also, you keep talking about "soffice process", but the real LibreOffice
process is called "soffice.bin" (on Windows and Linux; on macOS it indeed
is called "soffice"). The "soffice" (or "soffice.exe" on Windows) program
is just a thin wrapper that starts soffice.bin when necessary.
