Hi :)
Well found!!

Thanks for sharing that fix.  it's a bit weird to have something like that
enabled by default but i guess it is quite useful for a lot of people.
Personally i do all my wiki-editing either directly in the page's built-in
editor but occasionally copy&paste into GEdit or something.  Word made me
suspicious of using a word-processor for that sort of thing and i've never
tried Writer for it.
Regards from
Tom :)

I assume you have installed some LibreOffice extension for spell/grammar
checking or similar that uses Java.  That might explain it if you
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
- 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).
