I don't know if this has been resolved yet, but I was having a similar 
(read: exactly the same) problem.  Are you using nfs-mounted home 
directories by any chance?

In my case we're using a diskless gentoo system where the home 
directories are all nfs mounts to the server.  The problem had to do 
with nfs file locking.  It can be solved by editing 
/usr/lib/openoffice/program/soffice and commenting out these two lines:

SAL_ENABLE_FILE_LOCKING=1
export SAL_ENABLE_FILE_LOCKING

Note that setting it =0 was not enough for me, I had to comment them out.

Everything worked fine after that.

Scott.
