Open Office seg fault problem

I doubt it has anything to do with XFCE. I might try erasing everything
from /usr/local/openoffice1.1.1.org and then make sure your personal
directory doesn't have any configuration files. It usually hides it in
something like ~/.OpenOffice.org.1.1.1 Just in case that is horsed up,
You could also try downloading the openoffice.org rpm file for Fedora.
It's 1.1.1 and it has a pretty simple dependency list. It needs gtk2,
and of course a fairly new version of redhat-menu. I don't know what
version comes with 9. This might cause problems, but it is a thought.
If all else fails, abiword and gnumeric are pretty nice. :-)
