How to reproduce:

Comment 2 d33tah 2014-10-07 18:38:20 UTC
[20:38:02][/tmp][1] $ uname -a 
Linux d33tah-pc 3.16.3-200.fc20.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed Sep 17 22:34:21 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[20:38:04][/tmp]$ cat /etc/redhat-release 
Fedora release 20 (Heisenbug)

Is that enough?

Confirmed in Fedora 21 with LO4.3.2.2.

Confirmed in OpenOffice 3.2.1 also

The java error is just me.
