Hi :)
Sounds like something in the UserProfile.  Please can you try renaming your user-profile and see 
if that solves the problem?
It's a kinda magic cure-all for a variety of weirdnesses.  Note that renaming is better than 
deleting as it keeps all your galleries, templates, Extensions and everything so that you can put 
things back to either pin-down the problem or just recover stuff you do need.  To do the 
equivalent for non-OpenSource programs you would uninstall, hunt around for stray remnants, 
reboot and then reinstall but OpenSource generally lets you get "back to factory defaults" just 
by renaming their user-profile/configs-folder.  They (Gimp, Firefox etc) generally use the same 
basic path structure too which is quite handy.

The path Tom is referring to is found at
/home/username/.libreoffice/3/user, note the period/dot in the LO folder
name. To find it using the File Manager, you need to go to View>Show
hidden files because the configuration files are kept hidden by default;
the file/folder starts with a period

LibreOffice Writer wakes up huge displating about a 10ths of an A4
sheet and makes it unuseable.

I'm using Mint 11 Linux

Any thoughts on how to fix this ?

A desperate,
