I just replaced openoffice with libreoffice and I see similar behaviour.
Simply opening the drop-down font list instigates the segfault or crash
- I've seen instances both where a segmentation fault is reported and
core dumped, and where the application exits silently. 

Changing the font via the menus or typing in the font name text box
doesn't instigate the crash.

It also crashes when the menu "Tools->Language->For all Text->More..."
is accessed, but not for either of the "For Selection->More..." or "For
Paragraph->More..." menus.

The freebsd-openoffice@ list was closed recently, and freebsd-office@ is
now the common list for "office" applications.
