If you install extensions through unpacking them to ..\share\extensions\.. (to make them available to all users) they won't work if an extension folder name contains spaces. It will load toolbars, menu entries, etc., but won't load it's code (represented in *.xba files) and won't work at all. Nothing happens when you press the button of an extension or it's menu entry and you can't find it even when customizing menu or toolbar (usually extensions are represented in "my macros" when doing that). 
Also, version 4.3.x.x won't start at all giving you a failure error.

But if you rename the folder in a "proper way" (and delete user data so extension will be re-initialized) it will work perfectly.

Version did not have this bug.

Reproduced. Unpacked this http://extensions.libreoffice.org/extension-center/copy-only-visible-cells
to C:\Program Files (x86)\LibreOfficeDev 4\share\extensions\copy visi cells\
When I launch Calc, LibO crashes with Fatal error, bad allocation.
After removing the extension folder, had to delete user profile to get back to normal.

In Ubuntu, LibO refused to run and I got this in the debug output when the folder was present:
warn:legacy.osl:4017:5:desktop/source/deployment/dp_persmap.cxx:138: OSL_ASSERT: ('A' <= c) && (c <= 'F')
