Neither in the first posting in this thread, nor in the reference given by 
The situation, as far as those only subscribed to this list know, is that the 
user got root, without resetting the environment (su without "-" ), then 
"fixed" the missing session bus.

Then this session gets forcefully closed and the application crashes.

There is no indicication, at least not available to readers of this list, what 
the user is asking for.

Is it why libreoffice is crashing if the session it runs in is removed?
Is it why the session is closed when the controlling terminal is?

Since it is rather strange to run a GUI application, especially one of the 
complexity of an office suite as root, I was asking for clarification on this 

Anyway, there is little point in either of us guessing, so we'll just wait 
until Robert provides the glarification only he has.
