According to what can be read on the page I sent with my previous mail,
it seems to be a GTK-related issue. I confirm that all 7-stable
OpenOffice packages (including 2.3.1_1) work perfectly on my plain
7.0-RELEASE/i386 install, but with *up-to-date* ports, not with
precompiled packages shipped as a part of the release. So,

1) Update your ports, and don't forget ports/UPDATING;
2) Try OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=gnome if you're using KDE.
