I need to convert some old starwriter files (.sdw, sdd, .sdc extensions)

I understand the solution consists of temporarily installing (or
running off an usb key) the last version of LO that supported those
formats. However, the only such version I have found so far is the one
for Windows at

That version only works through wine, which is annoying but bearable
for a one-time task, but above all doesn't work. The document
converter finds the files, then crashes with this error:

Basic Runtime error.
An exception occurred.
Message: [msci_uno bridge error] unexpected C++ exception occured!.

any pointer to a linux version of lo 3.3, which hopefully may not have
that problem, and in any case would be easier to work with (editing
macros rendered with wine's idea of libreoffice fonts = terrible) is
very welcome. Ditto for tips on how to fix that macro by hand.
