I assume you have installed some LibreOffice extension for spell/grammar

crashes now when typing in Writer after upgrading to Mavericks (which
appears to replace any pre-existing Java installation with a "download it
now" stub).

Can you provide a list of LibreOffice extensions you have installed ("Tools
- Extension Manager...")?

Meanwhile found out that it is the wiki-publisher extension (which comes bundled with LibreOffice by default) that requires a Java VM to be instantiated in the LibreOffice process as soon as you type the first letter in Writer. (See <> "Why typing in Writer instantiates the JVM on Mac OS X" for details.)

So, one quick fix for people who are stuck with Writer keeping crashing would probably be to move away the wiki-publisher extension that is bundled in the LibreOffice installation. To do that in Finder, first make sure LibreOffice is not running, then navigate to the LibreOffice (aka application, from the right-click menu select "Show Package Contents", there navigate from "Contents" to "share" to "extensions" and move the "wiki-publisher" folder to the trash (or move it to some other place outside the "extensions" folder). Then create a new folder (with more or less arbitrary name, you can use "Dummy") within the "extensions" folder. When you start LibreOffice again, the problem should be gone (it might show a "LibreOffice quit unexpectedly" dialog once directly while starting, which is an unrelated problem and a different story, in which case just press the "Reopen" button).
