This may not be the solution you are looking for: I simply deleted the
Centos-x86_64-OpenOffice-RPMs from my sytems and installed the
precompiled i386-RPMs downloaded form openoffice.org.
Works without problems (and I lets face it: 32 bit is sufficient for
an office unless you happen to have spreadsheets that are >4Gig)
