    I've had similar issues with OpenOffice but I have never been able
    to figure out what's wrong.  I don't think it is HAMMER per-say, but
    instead something related to our linux emulation that is breaking.
    It seems to happen more consistently with HAMMER but issues also pop
    up with UFS.

OO 2.X also consistently useless on Mac OSX 10.3.9 with all-UFS fs. Shows OO splash screen, dies and goes where all responsible bloatware should take itself.

OOS 1.X did work on Mac UFS & 10.3.9.

OO 2.X works OK on OSX 10.4 with hfs+ fs.

    It could be related to the path prefixing the linux emulation does
    to give priority to the emulation directory structure on lookups.

Probably a lot more to it than that.... I'd point at javishness, but Mac's have /* oxymoron warning */ fairly usable java
