IDR the details.  Possibly but I don't remember it being a crasher.  I 
just remember the two takeaways, the general one being to check file 
associations when something unexpected starts popping up for some unknown 
reason; the specific one being that LO/OOo in particular now has a known 
history of such strange behavior when its associations get broken.

But unless I'm mixing up threads, I do seem to remember that it was pdf 
files on the web, I believe triggering OOo to open, instead of the usual 
app, okular or whatever.  But the memory there is fuzzy enough I'd not 
rely on it.  I think it's an accurate enough memory in general, but I'm 
not sure if I'm conflating two different reported issues or not; I very 
well could be.
