I tried the 184.108.40.206 rc version and it crashed on me, so I had to uninstall it and return back to some 5.0.X version. I tried the 220.127.116.11 today and had the same problem.
It starts properly and shows me the preview of the previous documents I've opened. But when I press calc or writer on the left side it's showing me something about a segfault and closes. When I start it the next time it will actually show me a recovery window.
I'm testing it on windows 7 if that's relevant.
Please try resetting the user profile, sometimes solves strange issues.
Usually it's enough renaming/deleting the file "user/registrymodifications.xcu", it affect all the options in Menu/Tools/Options, and the files "user/basic/dialog.xlc" and "scrip.xlc" are overwritten, additionally custom colors in "user/config/standard.soc" are lost.
I have HD2000 graphics, and see that there are some related bugs that this might be a duplicate of this.
In any case, I find those solution here unacceptable:
- Crash the first time, but then disable something the 2nd time.
- Tell people that they need to remove a working profile to be able to upgrade to a newer version.
If there is an OpenGL issue, it probably also shouldn't be segfaulting but recover in some sane way.
If the driver is really broken I suggest you start working on a blacklist, but I currently doubt that it's the driver. In any case if you think it's the driver it would be nice if you could provide a simple test case.

Yep, I have HD3000 and this same issue.
There is already a blacklist.
We should probably close this as duplicate of bug 97458
Yep, I will close this as dupe.
Just turn off OpenGL: Tools - Options - LibO - View - Use OpenGL for all rendering
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 97458 ***
Lets aggregate these all in one place too.
Kurt - could you attach some details from your user-profile's cache directory - there should be a file there:
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 96546 ***
The file contains:
DeviceString: Intel(R) HD Graphics
I've also tried it with the 5.1 release, still have the same issue. I've also tried this a 2nd time and I still get the same error. So I can't use the 5.1 release currently.
