The Debian maintainer for LibreOffice approached me with an error in LO 4.3.0.x
(cf. https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=752531 , search for "icon selection")
When the config directory contains symlinks instead of real files, no icon themes are found, and the program closes with an error message when going to the options and clicking on "view".
An example for a symlink looks as follows.
/usr/lib/libreoffice/share/config/images.zip -> ../../../../share/libreoffice/share/config/images.zip
FTR; typo in the bug URL (from me, probably): https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=752541 is correct
Tobias Lippert committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
fdo#81532 Handle symlinks to icon themes correctly
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More

Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
