It sometimes works okay.

Sometimes, it processes correctly. Other times, it just crashes.

If it crashes like you have said, after using "top", I have to use 
kill -9, to get rid of it.

I have also found, that if I close xwindows, without exiting star 
office, I have to reboot, before I can use Star Office again.

At the moment, in Star Office, if I stop, to proof read the email, a 
yellowish box appears, which goes across the screen, from somewhere 
beyond the left edge, to the right side, that appears to be some kind 
of help thing. It's the kind of thing that makes me want a fly swat, 
to hit it with.
