Hi Tom,

It is god to hear you have found a work-around.  If you wanted to install a version of 
Libreoffice or OpenOffice alongside it then please use the "Installing in Parallel" wiki-guide

On OSX 10.8.x, the first part of that advice with regard to installing
on Mac is obsolete. In OSX 10.8, the system recognizes that an
application with the same name is already installed and asks if you want
to overwrite or install the other version as a separate app. If you
answer the latter, then OSX automatically numbers the newly installed
app as LibreOffice2.

The second part of the information you pointed to in your link still
holds true, at least for the shared user configuration, i.e. any newer
LO installation will share the same configuration directory in
/<username>/Library/Application Support/ (which is hidden by default,
thanks Apple). The trick about renaming the profile also seems to work
on my system (from what I can tell), contrary to the information given
on the wiki page, at least between 3.6.x and 4.0.x
