Perdón. Va lo que mandó Alvaro completo:

1. Machines where the failure is happening:
a) 1* laptop 2 years old with 1 (mb?) RAM, 2.2 (mhz?), Nvidia video card
(512 mb), [qué marca es?]

b) 1 Dell* netbook with Atom processor (2...?, 1mb? RAM), GMA500 video
card 3 years old.

c) 1 Olidata* notebook with 1 mb RAM, aparently with Nvidia video card
(256 mb) with 5 years old.

*All these machines have Ubuntu 10.04 LTS system, although it has
happened until 11.04 version. I have not tested Libreoffice 3.5 and 3.4
on  Ubuntu 12.04 version

2. Failures reported:

Failure 01: Reported already on bugs 48569
When a complex document with tables, citations, footnotes, etc., created on .docx extension and 
saved with the .dot extension is opened and saved again but with .doc or .docx extension, 
Libreoffice quits. 
I have tried to copy all the document in a new one and then try to save it with that extension, but 
the failure still happens.

Failure 02: the most common of all (the most of the times happens in the laptop and on Olidataç
When you double-click on a .odt or .odf file to open it, Libreoffice hangs on and freezes on the 
beggining screen of the software. 
The only solution is to force quit and execute it again. In other cases, it does not hang, it 
simply quits.
When you restart the software it does not happen again, that makes me suspect of the "quick start" 
of the application.

Failure 03: When you try to download a Libreoffice document from a website or an e-mail, choosing 
the option "open directly" instead of "save as", the application freezes. 
The freezing does not happen if the file is downloaded to the hard-disk and then opened. It seems 
that the problem is in the velocity of the download process of the aplication.

Failure 04: when I download from the web a .ppt MS file and try to open it without downloading it 
to the hard-disk first it has happened that:
a) Libreoffice does not open it and show it like a decompressed folder, or
b) Libreoffice opens it but absolutely distorted.
Nevertheles, if the same file is downloaded first to the hard-disk, Libreoffice opens it with the 
correct format.
This failure has happened less times than the others, but it has happened with files of different 
origin and more with the ones that are .docx or .pptx

Of all the above, the more annoying ones are 2 and 3 failures that had happened only with the last 
versions of Libreoffice. It had never happened with Open-office, 
and don't think that with earlier versions of Libreoffice neither. A person that do not uses the 
application a lot may not notice this failures, or may not have problem to restart
the system sometimes, but in my case it is really a problem
