Have tested it with OpenSUSE 12.3 and OpenSUSE 13.2 on different systems. All works well with the original packages of LO (www.libreoffice.org). Then I tested with the LO-version of OpenSUSE, as it seems to be reported for (The Bild-ID is a special format of OpenSUSE, the original of LO looks like 
Build-ID: 3a87456aaa6a95c63eea1c1b3201acedf0751bd5).

With LO-version of OpenSUSE I couldn't open a report, but won't get the same Java-error as reported. Could only test Version, original installed together with OpenSUSE 13.2.

Seems to be a special bug of the OpenSUSE-packages. So please report it to OpenSUSE, not to LO. How it has to be done:

You could also install the original version of LO. You could get it here: http://www.libreoffice.org/
Reports would be opened with this version. Bugs for this version you could report here.
